    Nice one Winner.

    Purpose of the engine oil is to lubricate,cool and clean parts in the engine. Over time the engine oil becomes dirty due to the blowby gases(unburn petrol n bla bla bla) from the combustion chamber,metal shavings and etc. These brings down the qualities of oil,making harder for it to its job.

    When the oil losses its qualities you get higher than normal running temperature,parts in the engine get coated with carbon(sludge n etc) and more wear.

    if you use good,maybe u dun need to change so frequent.
    if u are loaded,u can change at every 1000km even though u are using the EO close to $30 a bottle..

    the engine is good running on clean oil. semi syn is enough for road use. fully syn is ideally for race use but singaporeans kiasu so use fully syn for every oil change. some even use fully syn for running in which is totally waste of money.

    There are few school of thoughts, those who used very expensive oil to protect the engine.
    Those who frequent oil change.
    Those who bo kan lan the oil use wat ever engine oil to put into their engine.

    Let's put it this way most bikes manufueraters' engineers had put their product in worst case scenario and make sure they wont fail as well. Do your owner manual told you to use fully syn oil. If not the bike engine would spoil. i am sure if you are the engineers, you wont risk the manufacturers reputation on stake. If the owner manual didnt stated anything and use the oil according to the spec, things would run fine as well.....As the bikes was shipped all over the world, engineers had to think of worst case scenario that the engine might not be running good oils or fully syn oil might not be available in some remote area of the world.

    I would say just use whatever that suit your pocket simple as that, change according to the recommended mileage stated in the OM. Those who feels good by spending more...Why not is your money is your bike...So far no oil tests had suggested use semi or mineral oil would accelerate tear and wear even lead to engine failure even if you dont use expensive oils even in high performance engines.
    I support frequent oil changes

    i did frequent oil changes on cheaper EO on my previous bikes, no prb at all.

    "But it ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. Now if you know what you're worth then go out and get what you're worth."
