If your using synthetic I would say u definitely don't need to do it that quick. I use amsoil and usually change it between 1500-2500

word. I test mine with Blackstone-labs.com and they are telling me to go 2500 and retest. we are trying to establish an appropriate OCI for Amsoil MCF with my riding habits. YMMV.

If you're running Amsoil full synth according to SeanO's oil you're good to at least 5k..

Without the use of UOA, you should not exceed the OEM's longest recommended Drain Interval.

The exception is with AMSOIL which has been tested to 2 times the OEM Drain Interval.

All Synthetics are not alike.. You have faux Synthetics such as Castrol SynTec, Valvoline, Rotella T and a host of others which are Hydro-Cracked Products to PAO w/Esters and pure Ester based oils. PAO's w/Esters are considered to be the top performers.

I use Amsoil 20-50 syn. and I go every 4-5000 miles. I can tell a difference in the bike when it gets up around 4000 miles.

me too- right at 4000 with Mobil 1- something doesn't feel right. it also sounds more dodgy on startup. if you listen closely, your engine will tell you when you need to change your oil i think. of course, part of it could be psychosomatic, but i don't think it's all psychosomatic. i also notice it doesn't rev quite as smoothly when it's at around 4000.

There's no way to be sure without a UOA. So many things can change how an oil degrades from rider style to the machine itself. If you want to get the most for your money and at the same time avoid throwing away good oil, an oil analysis is the only way to go.

Squid test:

So far, 13109 people (including you) have responded to this Squid Test Survey and have been tabulated.
Of those responses, the average grade is 53. Your grade was 82 (from 0 to 100)

A higher grade indicates a stronger sense of common decency, and a lower grade is an indication of conspicuous squidliness and general disregard for civilized society. Your score indicates that you are a fairly responsible motorcyclist but a bit of a wise-ass.

Hahaha.
