Sorry, I don't agree... These engines are hard on oil.... every 3000km is wise...

If the oil is getting close to being black, change it.... Thin black carbon filled oil doesn't lubricate or cool the engine the same as good clean oil does...


(Edit: it probably depends on what sort of oil, and what sort of riding you're doing.... IMO, once the oil is black/burnt looking, change it)
