I was responding to the OP and not you but of course you have to always be right.

That would probably be best since you have a chip on your shoulder.
The question I asked about changing oil every 3100 was legit and nothing that should have riled anybody up, and I can certainly handle being wrong.

Sorry for that, I certainly didn't mean to sound any more rude than I was being treated.

You're not exactly Mr. Sunshine yourself not to mention you took the first shot.

When using premium synthetic oil like Castrol that is a waste of money.
Many modern motorcycles have 10,000 mile (16,000km) oil change intervals.
I really enjoy hanging out in my garage..very therapeutic...I probably change my oil more often than necessary as a result..with non synthetic oil did it at 2500 miles or so...now with synthetic oil will probably go to around 4-5 thousand miles or so....as stated I really enjoy my garage time....all that said its good to know that taking it out to 6 or 7 thousand is not an issue....thanks for posting oil list Jetspeed.

I forgot to account for personal idiosyncrasies.
