I believe the most damaging thing in oil is the blowby that forms acids in the crankcase. I use GTX automobile oil and change it and the filter religiously. At $1.09 a quart after rebate, I enjoy changing my oil (except for taking off the fairing). With the price of synthetic and motorcycle-specific oils, I would probably let the oil sit in there longer than normal.

Why does every oil thread fall by the wayside?

A spot-on comparison.

I'm gonna run full synthetic in my bike. I'm gonna start with a semi and then go to full though. My last bike I put the Castrol R4 in it at 600 miles. I'm gonna wait a little longer this time and start with a semi first, then to a full synthetic blend.

Thanks for the info, kinda tired of taking a 30 mile trip just for kawasaki oil...though it is good excuse to ride, and the last time I went with a non kawasaki oil filter the O ring blew out 5oo miles later.
