is the oil still going to be carried in the frame on this bike ?

if not, will the engine and trans. oil be seperate , like the honda?

i have also heard there will be more than 1 oil filter like the the ktm.


From what I was able to glean from the Yamaha US and UK sites the motor is still dry sump, will now have a (just one) paper element filter.

Not sure about separate oil, but I’m guessing not.

Check the July issue of Dirt Rider Magazine. They are saying Non-oil reservoir frame wet-sump engine oil system, slimmed down swing arm, increased engine case oil capacity, and some other stuff.

yea for the YZ not the WR as far as the wet sump goes
