    Back to the Basics on an oil change!...HELP

    Thanks for your help everyone.
  2. Call me an idiot if you want, I am new to the 01 wr 426 world. Doing my first oil change on my brand new bike with out a manual. I drained the lower drain then drained the upper frame oil. Are these two resevoirs linked? Why wouldn't the frame drain at the same time as the lower (bottom of the motor)? Added oil to the frame resevoir, but does not fill the lower. Please fill me in? (I have ordered a manual, just has not arrived yet) if you give me a beating on the responses I can take it. Just please clue me in.

    Does WR 426 2001 have battery?

    I have the same bike and same scenario. The aftermarket baja kit uses a capacitor to "hold/store" some electricity for the components while riding. Once the bike is turned off, there is still some electricity in the capacitor available to use until gone. Hence the horn still works for a while etc... My capacitor was placed in the air box, 3 inches long by 1.5 inches in diameter and it is round. Hope this helps. Jim

    WR 426 Dual Sportable?

    I have an 01' 426 dual sported. 2.8 gal. per 100-110 miles. It is great running around town on. It is a little lite if I am on the highway, the drafts and wind really push me around and I am 230 lbs myself. If you are going to do more highway speeds then I would probably opt for a heavier bike, if it is more of a runaround, short jaunts etc... I would dual the 426.
