Ok, I picked up a used XT 225 today, a 2001 model and now I have a few questions.
First, I'd like to change the engine oil and filter, and read that these bike takes 10-w40. Can I use full synthetic10-w40?
When doing an oil change do I need to get new gaskets for the oil filter and a new drain plug crush washer, or can they be reused?
Also thinking about changing the brake fluid, anyone know what type is needed/procedure?

I plan on doing mostly off road rides, can someone let me know what tools I need to carry with me so I don't get stuck on the trail?
I'll start...spare spark plug and spark plug wrench....
Looking forward to hitting the trails.
cheers
