Oil Change

Mate, it depends on how hard you ride, I was GN4, ride hard and change every 750km, the oil still looks ok when it comes out, but its cheap insurance to stop engine failure. Always make sure you do the oil and filter at the same time. Dont do one with out the other, the 700xx runs a very small oil filter compared to a Raptor.

Gn4

GN4 isnt a full synthetic but it uses synthetic additives. It is good quality oil and I suppose its expensive because it has Honda printed on it. If you look close on the back its made by Caltex.

If your changing your oil frequently say every 750km (I dont go by hours) your probably waisting your cash paying extra for full synthetic, but if I was racing say like the Baja, Fink Desert Race, Australian Safari etc I would probaly use a full synthetic. The secret to reliability is consistant oil changes no matter what quality oil you use.
