I think we live in the year 2008 not 1956.
The engines and the engine oils they make today have all the right additives in it to go 6,000+ miles with dino oil.
Synthetic oil lubricates better and can be used for more miles because it does not break down like dino oil.
Changing oil at 3,000 miles is a waste of money, time and oil. Hell BMW says to change the oil every 6,000 miles, my hi-performance car manual reads 5,000 mile oil changes and the warranty is for 75,000 miles.
I use synthetic and change Eng., Trans. and Rear drive oil at about 6,000 miles and the engine oil filter at 12,000.
Donít change the oil too soon, save your money and buy something that will improve the bike, like after market shocks.
Go fast have fun, go faster have more fun!
