If I race mine, then every 2 races as I am usually in the HIGH RPMs for most of the race. If I am just leisure riding, every 20-30 hours. Some people want to wait until the 100hr mark, but it is cheaper to buy oil and filters than it is to replace something.

It all depends on the type of riding I did, if it's real dusty and slow going then I'll change it more often.

Yep, that slow going is the key....if your fan has to kick on alot to keep engine cool, then you want to cut your change interval in half....that heat will break the oil down fast

I change mine at 10hrs max, and there is a very good reason to change it often, I guarantee you your oil breaks down long before you will hit 30+ hrs. it is cheap insurance for a high cost investment that I want to last...but to each his/her own.

Well I am working on something right now to make sure you guys will benefit from using an oil analysis. What this is going to do is give you an inside look at the way your engine is working with your oil. It will give you particle counts on dirt and metal fragments and fuel contamination as well. It will even give drain interval reccomendations. I am going to post a thread about it in a couple of days. Basicaly though, you will no longer have to GUESS on wether the oil is still good or not so that you can get everything out of each oil change!

Take care

ditto... why risk causing engine damage when you can just change the oil a little early. Generally I'm every 4-5 rides (couple hours each usually)

I don't change my oil on a set schedule. Everything depends on what kind of riding I've been doing.
