Anyone match up an aftermarket filter yet?
See posts #23 , #24 and #25 in this thread: http://www.r3-forums.com/forum/530-oil-lube/3866-lets-talk-engine-oil.htmlAnyone match up an aftermarket filter yet?
Guess what "feature" the R3 doesn't have? You guessed it! If you hold the throttle wide open and crank the bike it starts up and makes a ton of noise!In fact, when I change oil filters and I cannot prefill the oil filter with oil, like it is on the R3 since the filter is horizontal I will start the bike after the oil change with the throttle wide open. This signals the ECU to cut the spark to the cylinders to allow the engine to clear out a flooded condition. If you crank the engine this way the RPMs are very low and cause very little friction but the RPMs are high enough to circulate the oil.
Yamaha superseded the 1WD filter already.
1WD-E3440-00-00 now changes upto 5GH-13440-50-00
