Re: Oil Change
As I recall (which is not as good as it used to be) when Mobil 1 came out @ 1980, they were advertising it at 25,000 mile oil. A local truck depot near hear was only changing it out at 40,000 miles. Since then they (Mobil 1) lowered the mileage, you can sell more oil that way, or they determined it was necessary. I dunno, I'm not an engineer. I've used Mobil 1 in all of my cages through the years and changed it around 15,000 with nary an issue. I've talked with many bikers of various brands over the years, and the consensus I've gathered from those conversations is that most bikers change their oil at 10,000 miles whether it is synthetic or not. YMMV
