How often motorcycle oil change
Mineral oil should be replaced every 2,000 to 3,000 miles, or at least once a year. Some experts may recommend a minimum of twice a year. Synthetic oil should be replaced every 7,000 to 10,000 miles, or at least once a year. Semi-synthetic oil should be replaced every 5,000 to 6,000 miles, or at least once a year.
If you’re always riding your bike at extremely high speeds
whenever you get on it, then the oil is likely to deteriorate faster than a rider who keeps to the speed limit. Or if you ride for short distances more often, regular oil change is recommended.
It’s advisable to start by checking your owner’s manual to see what the manufacturer states on how often to change the oil.
If you use mineral-based (cheapest option available), consider changing it at least every 2000 miles. Or at least twice every year if you don’t ride your bike regularly.
If you’re using semi-synthetic motor oil, consider changing it after covering around 5000-6000 miles.
And for fully synthetic engine oil, change it after around 7000-1000 miles. For starters, synthetic oil costs more than mineral-based oils and will last longer, saving you from the hassle of changing it frequently.
You should change your oil once every year or after covering around 3000-5000 miles with your bike. If you use your bike more regularly, you should conduct oil changes more frequently—regardless of the type of oil you use.
