wrong section

i use motul 10w40 others use shell rotella, well others use mobile1

your choice,

i change my oil every 1000 km/10hr but im not riding my bike hard
if your riding hard, maybe every 2nd or 3rd race

i use the regular stock oil filters... 15 $ each
some use scotts reusable.... probaly cheaper in the long run

i use stock air filter, i change about every 4 th ride depending how dust it is.
i use fab1 air filter oil

some people use aftermarket air filters...
