Every 5000 km for me
I am on my 4th GS, and i have always changed my oil at half of the recommended intervals. I do an oil filter and fresh oil every 5000 km.
I run a 15W50 semi synthetic, from Gulf Western in Sydney, and never have to top up between changes.
I do this simply because it cost me about AUS$35 all up. I buy my oil direct from the wholesaler at 20 litres for AUS$77 delivered.
Gotta be the cheapest preventative maintenance you can do for your engine.
That applies to all my engines. Half the manufactures recommendation.
