Wrong oil filter. Yamaha has been known to put the wrong oil filter in the correct part number's box.
What is the most common reason for top end oil failure? Eng was full of oil, oil filter looks good, eng went probly 20 miles after oil change before coming to screeching halt! Jake
+1 on the bogus filters out there.
Any squealing or other noises/symptoms before the bike died?
Was the oil bleed screw loosened on the top end with the motor running after the oil change to make sure the oil was getting up there?
If no oil comes out with the motor running & that screw almost removed disaster is imminent
The oil won't "gush" out, its more of a steady weep. Basically you are just removing any air from the system so it can't air lock the top end flow. I place a rag around the screw, back it out a few turns and start the engine. Once you have a steady flow, just re-tighten the screw and turn off the engine. Little shot of engine cleaner to clean up any mess and re check the oil level. Your TW is good to go.

Does anyone have any idea what size the bleed screw is? Yesterday I was commuting home and half a country block from my driveway I see smoke blowing out my rear, no pun intended...I looked done and seen that oil was spewing out the top of the cylinder head. I got her home and realized that the oil galley screw/bleed screw backed out and oil leaked everywhere. Lessoned learned torque to specs.....
