I'm using Maxima in both the transmission and engine. I change the oil after every 5 hours of ride time and I clean the filter after 10 hours. I have a staninless steel filter and had had no problems. It's more then paid for itself. Some say every 5 hours is too often to change the oil, but oil is cheap compared to engine parts and I have no problem doing it.

I run paper filters, but serioulsy need to buy a Scotts next season. I run Yamalube oil, just because I know it will work fine, and don't feel like searching around for "the perfect oil." Change oil every 5-6 hours, and filter every other oil change, until I get the SS filter , it will be cleaned with each oil change.
