Just picked up my new 2012 kx450

Recommended Posts

Some questions that I have:

 

Anybody had good luck with Tusk Racing reusable stainless oil filter?

What kind of oil do you run in the filter?

I have read about lots of problems with the chain guide.  Anyone try the Polisport product that replaces the stock plastic that fits in the stock metal guide?

 

Aside from a few small items, I plan on riding the bike stock a little this fall and then plucking away at some upgrades over the winter.

I'm an oe oil filter believer. They all seem to get that part right.

My Toyota and Lexus get Toyota filters

My subaru gets subaru filters

My mustang gets a ford filter

My Kawi gets a Kawi filter

Mobil1 in the Toyota and Subaru

ive always ran the nuertron filters from rockymountain they are 2.50 on closeout and have been that way forever. Just bought some tusk ones. Never had any issues with the 3$ filters

Scotts Metal Oil filter, Rotella oil, change every 10 hours and clean filter, clean air filter every other ride. Over 400 hours on the bike, two top ends, and valves are still in factory spec.
