Since EVERYTHING goes into the oil on a 700xx, clutch bits, carbon from the combustion process and so on having more oil to dilute it would mean less of a concentration of that stuff circulating through your engine. If you were say a baja racer that would mean better engine protection since you're WOT (I'm assuming) most of the time.What is the advantage? Extended drain intervals?
My throttle isn't graduated so that it delivers different levels of fuel to the motor, it's more of and on/off thing.Why so much? I've done mine 3x and I have 4500 miles on mine.
Like I stated earlier, oil is cheap engines are not. The money you save by not doing an oil change when it's due won't go very far towards an engine rebuild. Oil in these types of engines gets contaminated very, very quickly as SCUZZ pointed out. Everything from clutch material, unburned fuel, and carbon from the combustion process gets in there.Why so much? I've done mine 3x and I have 4500 miles on mine.
In all seriousness, I hate working on stuff, and I don't want them to say I neglected my motor if something happens and I need that 5 year warranty I paid for.How come u guys are so compulsive with oil changing?
I'm not too sure about that.The contaiminents in this engine are no different than most other street motorcycles,(except harley). Keep your air filter clean and use quality oil,(not Honda's lowest bidder stuff),change at the recommended times and ride on!
