Oil change after riding hard?
Since this applies to my RS as well as my VFR, I'll ask here.
Since I like to occasionally ride my bike hard (cough) and occasionally hit the rev limiter (cough) And, I have spent entire days on canyon roads in the upper rpm range, I ask this question, as blatantly obvious as the answer may or may not be.
After spending a number of hours in the high rpm range, is it prudent to change the oil more often? Case in point, my VFR owner's manual states oil changes at every 6K. As I don't know what the riding criteria the engineers had in mind, what do you think?
