Now after the bike is well used, I'm changing it around 200 miles-but these are almost all fairly hard riding with little 'cruising' on the road. I think if you do it under 300 miles you should be fine.
Here's a tip. When all the drain bolts are out, get on the bike, pull in the compression lever and push the kickstarter SLOWLY over about 1 dozen times. You'll be amazed how much dirty oil will come out from the oil lines and pump. I've tested the pressure after doing this and it comes up immediately, so i don't there's risk of momentary lack of oil on the top end.
