break in oil change

Manual says after break-in, but I can't seem to find any hard number for it.

It was recommended to me by a close friend who has owned many bikes to change oil frequently after break-in to see what you are getting in your oil. Then once you know how the bike is responding wear-wise, you can increase the interval at which you change (within reason of course).
Oil changes on the WR450 are cheap insurance that the small amount of oil that it carries is clean and contaminant free. I am not worried about the oil breaking down, it doesn't see nearly enough miles to come close to that.
A few oil changes on petroleum based oil is a good idea before switching to synthetic. All moving parts need to wear together and petroleum based oil aids in that process.
