My bikes only got 170 miles on it and the oils been changed 4 times. I plan on changing every 300 miles and using Amsoil 20w50 motorcycle oil, Used it in my xr and cr for years. Good stuff

Motul 300V (a little expensive but so is a rebuild) every 250km, oil filter every time, air filter every ride, even if it's only a half hour ride.

Yamalube and change both filter and oil every 15 hours. Always looks clean when I change it, but after reading what other people do may go to every 10 hours.

I change the oil after every two tanks of gas....about every 150 to 200 miles.
Bel Ray Thumper Syn 20-50.

Or after one race.

I change the air filter after ever ride or tank of gas if dusty or every two tanks if not.

I use Amsoil 10-40 and change every other ride. ( 5-10 hrs) with filter cleaning ( Scotts). I have about 2000 miles on my '05 and it is running strong.
