I bought my bike about 2 months ago.
Had 10 000 maintenance and had her to the woods 4-5 times since.
I clearly remember one of the guys took the air filter, used an air gun to clean the filter and put it back.
Anyway, I bought a twin-air filter and no-toil filter oil.
I had a chance to change the air filter tonight, but first I went downstairs to take off the old one.

As I opened the air filter cover, I got very mad, because there was dust in the clean side of the filter. The filter was completely black in color and full of dust.

So, I don't know what should I do right now, should I change the engine oil, because some dirt has clearly past the filter and got the the engine block. Or is there something I can do to prevent future damage ?

Some of the cds and even some manuals that state they are Yamaha, are not.
I would rather pay the dealer, than a rip off person. Ok, just my opinion.

If you know your dealer very well, ask them for the build sheet that comes with every bike. It will have the torque specs and other useful info.
This should be free if the build guy is not a dick.
Again, some of the shops do not work with the paper manual and prefer the cd. I was able to buy the shop manual for 50.00. Not bad.

Yamaha manuals are not the best in the world. Honda's are much better.
Yamaha's leave a lot out or up to your imagination..

Sometimes it is best to do the maintenance yourself.
What damage has been done, is done. I would change the oil and filter and install the new filter with filter oil and never let someone else work on your bike.

Also make sure to clean any dirt in or around the throttle body before your start it.

HAYNES does NOT have a WRR manual. The one they have is for 1998-2008 YZs and WR-Fs.

Well, it's the last time the WR will look like this. It is going back to pretty much stock everything, ready to sell.

Thanks Shep! I'm running Dunlop MX51's right now. I put them on back in November in preparation to run an enduro. They're not D/S tires and are off road only. They roost like crazy. I'm usually covered in mud/snow by the time I'm done riding.

HDB top clamp and ignition key

I'm in the process of installing the HDB guards and top clamp and noticed that it is going to be tough to get the key in/out. In fact, with the top clamp on, I can't get the key in at all.

Here are some pictures of the key with the point to the front and to the back and a view from the top.







I was reading on basher's site that he used his dremel to remove the point and make it rounded which is a really cool idea. But I'm concerned that it is not going to help since I can't get the key in at all right now.

Thanks

I live in Ohio but our local ACE hardware store has Yamaha blank keys and will cut you a extra key. The key they sell does not have the black plastic on it. The last one I had cut was $2.50. You could get a couple made and do all the Dremel trimming you wanted on it.

I *may* opt to shop for a lightly ridden "stock" WR250R and jump over accessories/part out remainder from both bikes but I'm more inclined to move on now that KTM has fuel injected 350/450/500......we'll see....I really had a blast with the WR...
