Does the CRF230 have an oil filter?

Recommended Posts


The CRF150/230 has a quite efficient oil filtering system, but does NOT have a screw-on disposable element type filter like many other bikes. It does have a screen at the oil pickup, and a centrifugal style mechanism that only needs serviced after many, many miles.

Once every couple of years would be enough in most cases. Of course if you are a tinkerer like me, then things like that get serviced much more frequently!

Because the engine only works with a quart of oil, I recommend frequent oil changes to keep any crud from accumulating in the first place.
