Admittedly I'm one of the last holdouts on the 3000mi oil change, and I don't believe you can change your oil too often, however the days of 3000mi oil changes have gone by the way side. Unless you are in a situation where you ride less than 5-10 miles every time you start the bike, or ride in really adverse weather where your engine never gets fully warmed up, you will be fine with 5000mi changes, especially if you're using a quality synthetic oil.
I certainly don't agree with everything the MoCo puts out, but if they're willing too warrantee the engines with 5000mi oil changes, that's good enough for me.
('course there is the fact that very few riders will ever get past their 2nd oil change in 2 years)
