Oil changes

Recommended Posts

Hey I am new to thumper talk, I’ve recently bought a 2015 wr450f it’s done 12000k’s and I was wondering how often I should perform an oil change, I ride it at least every 3 days. I was thinking of doing it at every 1000k’s what do people reckon?

Manual says every 1k. They only hold about 1litre, so I like to change more than the recommended...every third ride for me. Trails and no road work. Use an Hour Meter instead.

So every 10 hours roughly?

About 3-5hrs for me. I'm hard on the clutch too, so it's an easy way to keep an eye on things there. Oil is cheap maintainance, filter every second change. Check bottom filter every third. Happy Trails mate, great bikes...don't forget to check out the mapping posts above too.

Somewhere between 10 and 15hrs is fine

Got 10kmiles / 500 hrs out of my 08 450 with this frequency, before selling it
