Just want some opinions on how often everyone changes their oil. I use Honda GN4 10w-40 in accordance with an hour meter on the 700xx dash.

So, using GN4 oil, how many estimated hours per change does everyone recommend? I heard/read/researched that a conventional oil will burn significantly quicker than a synthetic oil.

So.. every 10 hours? ...15 hours? ...20 hours? ...more?
I'm currently at 3 hours and the GN4 looks really clean.

Thanks.

I never thought about looking in the manual for oil changes per hour. However, 100 hours sounds high IMO. Wouldn't you think it would be burnt by then?

I know synthetic oil is new technology, and I have run Mobil 1 in my yamahas before, but do you think GN4 is decent quality? I know it's a conventional oil, but it is made specifically for our bikes. Is it pretty much a coin flip to use GN4 vs synthetic in the 700xx or would synthetic be a much better choice in the long run?
