As a general rule, engine oil should be changed every 3000 miles or so, as great demands are made of it. With synthetic oil, you have the ability to travel as much as 5000 miles. However, depending on your driving style, you may have to change it more or less often. For example, if you make lots of short journeys, engine oil performance will deteriorate, because condensed droplets of fuel will get into it. Similarly, if you do not use your motorcycle very often, or if you use it intensively, engine oil quality may be reduced depending on the types of lubricant that you use.
Although it’s not required to change your oil filter every oil change. Oil filters are cheap and help ensure you’ll get the longest life from your oil change so we recommended changing the filter too.
