Oil and filter changes

6 posts in this topic

Vet28 changes his oil after every 2 rides (4-5 hours). His filter goes every 10 hours.

It's cheap piece of mind. Depending on how/where you ride that is.

Some go 15 hours on a filter.

I just changed my oil and filter for the first time today. Wow! So much more complicated then on my 2-stroke. Had fun doing it though. Something like four drain plugs, oil filter , oil screen, etc... all new stuff to me. One thing, when I removed the frame drain bolt oil gushed all over my front tire. Big mess but I won't make that mistake again. Live and learn.

Usually no real need to remove the screen from the frame. I take it out about every 30 ours and it's very clean. I change my oil every 5 hours and my filter every 10 hours.

I change my oil every 2-3 hours and filter every other oil change. Cheap insurance.
