Opinion: To change or not to change?

10 posts in this topic

I changed the oil and filter on my 06 YZ450 and have since ridden it for a total of 20 mins at Raceway Park in Englishtown. I am going trail riding this weekend and will probably be out for 3 hours or so. Should I change the oil again before I go?? Thanks

If there is any doubt in your mind and you have the time, change the oil. It is cheap insurance.

You change your oil after 20 minutes?

Yep.

Maybe I have some kind of a disorder about keeping clean oil in my bike. :applause:

Oil is cheap (Rotella) and I have time to kill, so why not? :eek:

i think 20 min is too long for a oil change. i would do it every 10 min lol... im just kidding i change my oil after every 2 rides or 1 race and one practice then 1 race and one practice. but always after every two to 3 rides, if i were you i would just go for the trail ride and then change it

ride on

Gray, no, I normally wouldnt.I was just looking for opinions. If I did my normal 2 to 3 hour ride I would for sure. I have been using the Amsoil too and it is $9+ a quart from the dealer so if I dont feel I have too I wont. I know 9 dollars is cheap insurance but where do you draw the line??? 20 minutes????
