Have been doing that for years on all the bikes I've ridden. In the past I did run some very expensive Synthetic oil, but I realized after a while I just throwing my money away because I changed it so often. I use the exact oil that Yamaha recommends so that if something oil related occurs to the engine, I can say "Hey, I was using Yamalube!"
I check the screen in the frame every three oil changes (have yet to find anything on it) and I change my filter every 3-4 oil changes depending on the length of races or type of riding.
I would like to get a magnetic plug. I had one on my XR600's but rarely found anything on it . . .
