Oil change

Ok, so I've heard all kinds of intervals between oil changes, I understand what type of riding you do comes into play and where you live and the heat and so forth. I have a 2013 RG that last had an oil change (Redline Synthetic) at around 5,000 I now have 7200 and people are telling you need to change it now? What is then normal time frame for a change? 2,000, 3,000 4,000. Will probably get it done regardless since i live in the northeast and will be putting the bike away in a month or so.

I'll play. 5K. I also suggest you check out your manual & do a search on this site. Good luck reading every one of them.

Why not take a sample and have an analysis done ? Sure, you will have an added expense of the lab report, but it will tell you what is in the oil and a suggested duration for the next change.
