i use yamalube 4, something like $2.30 a quart. you dont need to change the oil filter every single time. i change it every 3 oil changes.

Now, that being said I have an honest answer to your question. It really depends on what type of riding you are doing. 200 miles is really quite some distance for a bike engine of any kind. If you are racing, oil change and filter clean after every race. Oil change after a good weekend of riding, and especially after riding wet or dusty conditions. Other than that, change it when you feel like it should be changed. Afterall, it is your bike, you can change your oil whenever you feel the need. I have a buddy that has a lawn mower from 1970 and has never changed the oil, only added oil when it was low. That mower runs like a top!! Just my 2c.

If you already know the answer why are you wasting are time?
Every 200 miles, that's crazy that's about $15.00 every oil change. You only have to change the oil in a automobile every 3000 miles! I know that dirtbikes depend on oil more than automobiles, but I was thinking every 1000 miles!
