450 oil change ?

do you guys pull the screen behind the skid plate on every oil change? If not how often?


Maybe every 4th oil change. Have yet to find anything in there. Wonder why yamaha even put it there, other than to aggrevate the owners.

I think they put the screen in there for people that don't do oil changes very often, and need something to catch the pieces of filter that fall apart. i change my oil every 500 km, change the filter every other oil change, and clean nothing out of the screen every fourth oil change.



I was checking it every oil change and never found anything in it. Now I only check it MAYBE every ten oil changes. It's a giant P.I.T.A. to check, so I don't see the need to do it as often anymore.
