Since you were talking about Oil I thought I'd see how many miles everyone goes before they change their oil.

I need to change my oil BAD!! I have been lazy. How is the clutch lubed?? I have noticed I've been popping out of 2nd gear more often. Does my oil change have anything to do with it? :confused:

on silkolene race i changed it at 4000... I could have gone longer based of the fact that my clutch was still smooth. When i changed it i seriously thought about putting the used stuff in my truck since it felt like it was barely used. My truck gets the mobile 1 treatment. It didnt even change color much... Still had a red tint when draining. I cant stand going any longer to change my oil even though it is race synthetic. on the regular suzuki oil i didnt go more than 2000 miles before my clutch was getting clanky... I love silkolene.

The clutch is lubed with the engine oil.

I change oil and filter every 1000 to 1200 with silkolene Race 10-40
I dont like the thoughts of clutch material being carried through my motor
by the oil even if the filter should trap it Ilike it clean

it cost $12 a liter, i do change my filter everytime instead of the suzuki reccommended everyother oil change.

filter-$15
oil-$36+$12 (1 extra to top off since the filter was changed)
That get way too expensive if u change it at that mileage

every 1000-1200 Miles....Thats crazy dude....what do u do with ur bike?????

I'm probably closer to 3,500-4,000 miles, or about twice a year in between changes with mobil MX4T.

You street guys that change it every 1000 miles are nuts. But to each his own :thumbup:
