Do I Really Have To Change My Oil Every Year?




Quote:
Dear MOby,

I just saw your answer regards oil change. My manual says that I need to change oil every 3000 miles. But I only ride about 1000 miles per year (very short commute). By the book, I need to perform oil change every three years. Do I really need to change oil every year? Is it okay to change oil every three years, just because I don’t ride that much?

Thank you
Jay

PS: Just to make myself comfortable, I do oil change once a year.

You can do anything you wish about the service of your machines. The above statement, IMHO, does not rise to a level that deserves an answer.

I went a step further to assist the factory oil cartridge, I installed a remote mounted oil filter, re -routing the oil line that normally goes to the finned oil cooler, now goes through a spin on cartridge filter to help remove clutch material, etc. From there it goes to the oil cooler. All hose connections are double clamped and protected from chafing.
