i run amsoil and have no problem with changing every 8k. under the right riding conditions i'd go even farther, but my concern wouldn't be with a quality synthetic breaking down, but with the filter. anyway, 8-10k and i change the oil.

I try to change mine every 15,000 miles but some times forget and it will go up higher... So far no problems, runs like it did the day I got it and I have just under 207,000 miles on it now..

Don't you think 16k, is a little long between oil changes? Even for synthetic, that's a bit much. We don't want Bumper, to ruin his motor. :cry:
I don't think so.

I use Mobile 1, 15/50 rated at 15K and have a little over 16K on it now, and will change it as soon as the weather gets bad enough to slow down and do it. Just got back from a 1200 mi trip this last Sunday night and didn't even think about it. Oil still where I filled it to, and still looks and smells good. There is a change coming up but I don't know for sure just when, and I also use the cheap Wally World special filters.

I've run Amsoil full synthetic in my cars for up to 30,000 mi with an amsoil brand filter change at 15,000 and top off the level. No problems and have ussually about 160,000 or so miles when traded in. So in my Wing I don't worry running so far 9,700 with the same mind set and treatment.

I would love to see his oil reports. It would be very interesting. Next time let me know when one of you guys are changing your oil with that much mileage on it.

Well, lessee about Bumper's rationale:

Honda book says change oil every 8000 miles, Amsoil says you can double the life of the oil change, hence 16000 miles.

I do mine every 10000 for my own reasons. (easier to remember)
