The WR-YZ250F/426/450 Man Funnel
 

The Man Funnel was designed to put an end to this headache once and for all. Never again remove the skid plate to change your oil.

Honda and other manufactures have come to us with 4-stroke motocrossers that are built for speed and power. The days of thumpers being low maintenance are gone, unless you want a trail bike. One of the most crucial aspects of maintaining a high level of performance and durability from the motor is frequent oil changes in the motor and transmission. In the case of the CRF450 this is somewhat of a nuisance due to the location of the drain bolts. It is messy and can take up precious time and if you run a skid plate you can double your time and mess. If you own a CRF450 you know what I mean.

The WR-YZ250F Man Funnel 2001-2004
Also fits WR-YZ426F and YZ450F Frame Drain Bolt

Yamaha revolutionized 4-stroke motorcross and off-road bikes in 1998 with the release of the YZ and WR400F. In 2001 while others were playing catch-up they introduced the YZ and WR250F which has become one of the top selling bikes in America. Like all modern day thumpers the Yamaha 250F's are built for performance, not ease of maintenance. This is apparent with the location of the drain bolts on the 250F.

The first is located on the frame down tube. When the bolt is extracted it spews oil out and you are lucky if you can keep it from soiling your front wheel. The second drain bolt is recessed back above the frame rail under the shifter. During a routine oil change draining the oil can quickly become a messy task as the oil flows directly onto the frame rail and all over the stand, floor or worse yet, it pools in your skid plate.

The YZ250F ManFunnel is a 2-piece design that eliminates the mess associated with both drain holes. First the frame harness, the pewter piece, clips on to the frame down tube and the funnel snaps into place creating a simple solution to routing used oil out and away from the bike with out the mess. For the second application the funnel portion is used by itself to drain the motor oil by clipping onto the frame rail and extending under the drain bolt creating a bridge between the gap of the drain hole and frame rail. Again it routes used oil out and away from the bike with out the mess.

As with all of the Man Funnels it acts as a filling funnel to put oil back in the bike as well. It works on the frame fill spouts on the 01-02 models as well as the motor fill holes on the 03-04 models.

Is it going to add horsepower? NO. Is it going to make you faster? NO. Will it save you time, frustration and clean-up? Oh YES!

Take a look at the following pictures to see how it actually works. Click on any of the pictures to enlarge them.
Step 1: Proper Frame Drain Bolt Fit
After cleaning all dirt from the bike that may prevent proper fitting. Heat the bike per specification in owners manual. Then install the funnel as shown. (see image 1, 2 & 3)

Step 2: Drain the Frame Oil
With your drain pan under the funnel and remove the frame drain bolt. Allow oil to drain completely
Step 3: Install the Frame Drain Bolt
Reinstall drain bolt to MFG specified torque.
Step 4: Proper Motor Drain Bolt Fit
After cleaning all dirt from the bike that may prevent proper fitting. Heat the bike per specification in owners manual. Then install the funnel as shown. (see image 1, 2 & 3)

A proper fit is key to success. Ensure that the funnel clips on to the frame and extends under motor oil drain bolt for a proper seal.

Funnel armature should clip onto the frame as illustrated.

Step 5: Drain the Motor Oil
With your drain pan under the funnel and remove the motor oil drain bolt. Allow oil to drain completely.
Step 6: Install the Motor Oil Drain Bolt
Reinstall drain bolt to MFG specified torque.
Step 7: Fill With Oil
Use the ManFunnel to fill the motor oil. Insert the ManFunnel into the down tube or fill hole, depending on year model. Pour in your new oil as per specified by your manual for both type and amount. By using the funnel for filling you reduce the risk of knocking dirt and or debris into the down tube/fill hole with your oil and it is much easier and cleaner than pouring from a bottle or ratio cup.
