every 200 miles. use mobil 1 15W-50 fully synthetic. that is what alot of guys use. The good ole yamalube 20W-40 is always a good choice also.

I took my oil out to save weight :)

I change every 4 - 5 rides depending on how hot the days were and how hard I rode the bike.

I use Castrol Act >Evo 20-50 some use the 10-40

Others use Mobil 1 Red Cap.

DO a Search Pleanty of information there. It actually boils down to what you prefer. I use Castrol in all my engines including the lawnmower.
