Oil change interval
« on: March 23, 2018, 06:42:00 PM »

Just wondering how often you guys change the oil in your track bikes?   Wondering if i should change the Maxima synthetic i put in it in october than has 2 track days on it?

Personally I wouldn't. I run synthetic and change it once in the off season and once in the middle of the year, roughly 10-12 track days per oil change.

I've been doing oil changes with the synthetic yamalube after every weekend. Probably way overkill. I might spread it out a bit.

If it were my bike I wouldn’t change yet. You are talking about 200-300 miles and it hasn’t been a year. Oil should be fine for another track day.

I change my oil similar to what Shoaf said above. As my pace picks up and I run the engine closer to redline for longer periods of time I will start changing a little more frequently.

I wouldn't really think of it as running near red line as much as lugging the bike a bit more than being on the boil. Clutch wear does not care if you are Mat Scholtz or me. That shit gets in your oil.
