1040 Yamalube every 600 miles if I get lucky. Bumped 1100 once. Oil filter (OEM) every 3rd change. Air filter cleaned if it needs it. As a matter of fact I am still running the one replacement filter that I bought early on and I cannot even give myself a clue as to who makes it...and I am looking at it now:excuseme: . Have been riding daily and catching off routes along the way since 2005 with the only failure to date being a melted can (OEM) connection at the header end which subsequently melted a bit of my rear fender. Other than that though..I am still thumpin:thumbsup:

I know this is overkill and I would be just fine with Rotella T or something else similarly priced, but a couple times a year I need to put 400 miles or so between oil changes in Baja, and using the best oil I can buy and changing it frequently stateside gives me piece of mind, if nothing else. Additionally, I need my bikes to last 3-4 years, at least, and again, I would prefer to pay more for oil to preserve my confidence that my bike will last that long.

Scotts Stainless oil filter cleaned at every oil change
Oil changed after every trip to the dez. Doesn't matter if it's one day or 3, she gets "serviced". Most desert days are 100 miles or less...
Twin Air air filter cleaned after every trip also. If it's really dusty or we've ridnen a bunch in a day, I may change it before riding the next day.
