I used to do it every 3000 miles, but with these new oils and better engines i go 5000, dealer told me i can go 7000 with no worries, and i have the extended warrentee..., but at 5000 the oil still feels very good, and isn't real dirty looking. I don't drive the bike very hard. I'm older....LOL

synthetic has stronger detergents in it to clean and regular oil likes to bond with moisture if motor not run warm enough. my nephew a journeyman mechanic told me to run break in with normal oil so rings and cylinder walls and bearings polish better then use synthetic after that if i want.thats what i read and was told.
