I cant find my owners manual. Ive got 1850 miles on the bike i had the oil changed at the recommended interval done at the dealership at 600 miles. Should I do the oil change at 2000 or 2500. Am I fine to switch over to full synthetic or wait until 5000 miles. im going to use mobil 1 for the full synthetic. If i should switch to synthetic yet what oil would you recommend. thanks


Uh oh! I see this one coming...

Welcome bigblue14, you are good to switch to full sythentic, intervals are up to you but I change my oil approximately every 2k with full snythetic which some may say is overkill. I have ran Royal Purple MC, Amsoil MC, and I currently changed the oil with Mobil 1 4T MC 10w40 full synthentic but brands are also personal preference. I'm just over 10k miles now.

your good.Many cars and bikes come from the factory with full synth.the new vette comes with mobil 1 from the factory.Its old school thinking that you need to break in your bike with standard base oil the change over to full synth.I have talked with mobil one twice about this thought and they can explain to you why this is not the case.Hope that helps a little.
