I will need to do the same to mine soon when I change from a 13/47 to 14/50 set up. This question might seem strange but I bought the bike with the spedo healer already installed and adjusted, but I have no idea where it is on the bike or how to adjust it? Any help?

I was wondering when someone would someone would chime in on how to put oil in your bike. Really pretty easy and basic............ like you said.

Wow this is like a game of telephone. I ask 1.30L vs 1.40L and it turns into how do I put oil in the bike.

Well, its neither. And both. Sometimes. Depends on how much you drained out in the end after all.

If it's a SpeedoDRD you're looking for this.



You'll find it either under your seat or behind the left side number plate, same side your battery is on.

There is an instruction sheet link and a video link at the bottom of the 12oclockLabs webpage.

Hi guys,

I've been riding an XT for more than a year and experienced all possible conditions from rocky single tracks to long freeway rides. It served me well but the weight was giving me troubles so I started searching something lighter.

Long story short, I narrowed my choices to KLX and WR. Tested KLX on the highway and off-road. The power was lacking obviously, especially compared to XT. Last weekend I took a WR for a ride and 30-40 km of dirt and road riding was enough for me to make a decission. This baby is now mine :)

What I love the most is the insanely high RPM engine. It keeps running, running and running ! I've done 300+ km so far. This machine is clearly the best one I have ever owned

Does the wr250r require premium gas and how does the bike perform on highways at high altitude?

It'll run on anything, but gets best mileage with 90+ octane. Regarding altitude, the bike is fuel injected so it runs well atop the high passes, but it definitely is noticeably more powerful below 5000'. Phoenix is about 2000' where I keep the bike. Quite lively there but I am generally going north from the valley to where it is 5000'-7000'.

Mine is under the right side cover.

I am waiting to finish with tire and gearing changes to mess with it, so I'm no help, unless you need a copy of the instructions (mine is a Speedohealer V4).

If it's actually a Speedohealer, this might be some help:

Just got this bike a while back, have not been riding much but want to change the oil. Yamaha tells me there is an oil filter. So I bought the real small paper filter and 2 qrts of oil and I see the drain plug and the fill cap, but were does the filter go?
