    Smile Did my first oil change today!

    I did not know the filter was reusable and did not know I had a oil filter screen all good. I did order 5 paper filter from Procycle so I will alternate next oil change 100 miles and then 200 had some metal in the filter but not as bad as my DR650.

    I think the TW's oil flow rate is so low the filter size is overkill. You wouldn't believe the amount of crud I've found in TW, TT-R, and XT filters, some with 10k miles and then some and never had the filter changed, just the oil, and still no evidence of oil starvation.

    Did my first Oil/Filter Change on Sunday and tightened up the Chain a notch...Kept the old Yamaha Filter and put in a paper one....at 250 miles it had very little medal deposits and the oil still was pretty clean....will go another 250 before changing again...
