I waited until just after the one year mark to grease my 19 Yamaha 450, everything was well greased. The swingarm and Linkage could have gone longer, the lower shock bearing was the only thing that really needed new grease.

I'm sure the service manual says to check that the retaining ring is seated correctly. Note your 17 was the exact same design, so take that for what it's worth. In all honesty I'm surprised more people don't get injured by working on their own bikes. ... more »

I ride in weather down to the teens on occasion, the thing to remember is to warm a lithium battery by cranking in a few short bursts like mentioned above. I run a thermostat on my bike because I found it to never fully heat up riding below 60°. I still ... more »
