This definitely comes down to peace of mind. Sure the synthetic oils can be changed at extended intervals but we have found that for *most of the bikes we service*, changing the oil at 2,500 or 3,000 versus 5,000 mile intervals only adds 1 more oil change a year. It is funny because every synthetic convert asks about intervals and we tell them that 5k is fine but they still tend to keep it closer to 3k...I think the Texas heat has more of an effect on customers heads than the oil....
