Wet clutch contamination and long chain molecule gear shear are valid reasons to change the oil more often than 9,000 miles or annually.

Few here will ride the 9,000 miles in a year, so time is their real oil change measurement.

Wally World has this oil for $9.97. More than what I pay for Amsoil, but then I am close to one of their distribution warehouses.

The Mobil 4T is a very good lubrication option.

Someone posted about a full ester motorcycle oil.

What I have seen is that esters love water, so absorb it quickly. More frequent oil changes will help reduce corrosion inside the engine if you choose an ester oil.

So how do you switch off the 'Oil Service' light when it's flashing on start up? Still got to go to a dealer right? Or do you just ignore it?

I'm headed to the dealer for new tires. Will have them reset the light.
