My brother is a mechanic of 40 years, he works on everything including motorcycles - his theory is changing oil is the cheapest insurance for long engine life! New oils don't breakdown like years ago, but the oil still collects impurities that add to wear and filters do not take it all out! Always change between 3-5,000kms. if at all possible - even on long trips we do oil changes as a scheduled stop. So far so good!
