Blackstone labs 6,000 mile tests on K1600 oil shows not much life left.

Unlike auto engines, and a few motorcycles, the Ducati, like the K1600, shares the crankcase and transmission and clutch in the same oil bath. 9,000 miles is a lot to ask.

40,000 miles on my SP, including track days.
Oil changes according to the interval in the manual.
Still running like the day I bought it.

All my bikes and cars follow the intervals defined by the manual. Never had an engine issue related to lubrication...

I drop the oil in-between services, its easy to do and doesn't cost that much.
I do quite a few track days and rag the arse of it, so piece of mind for me, also never had to top up between either.
