    Default Returning to green laning

    Better pic hopefully. Manual does say every 600.
    I decided that a full days use was enough and it was cheap enough to change. I figured no harm from changing them more often.

    I never did the valves that regularly though, ouch!!

    Too many oil changes and not enough valve checking. Great advice.

    Not sure which manual that is from. I have an ally frame wr 250 and have had a 450 the same. I have the genuine Yamaha service manual here and after the first month or 600 miles it says to then do oil and filter every 1800 miles or 3 months.
    I do actually change mine more but I use it for mx and enduro as well as green laning.
    Fantastic bikes,great fun to ride.

    With better tyres, the XT660 R or Z could be an option.

    I was a total novice and enjoyed laning my Z. Picking it up out of ruts was less fun mind you
