oil .. filter ...oil & filter change

Guys

My 748R has, and will continue to be, garaged for the winter. I was thinking that in spring it might be prudent to freshen the sump up a little.

How many of you do your own intermediate oil & filter changes and how frequently?

Cheers
N

I use 15 50 weight as recommended by Nelly.

Thanks for reminding me, i need to get some ordered from him.

I will be running it in the 998 and 748 this year and think every 2 trackdays for the 748 and every 1500 miles for the 998 on the road.

Mood: Finally gotten over the 748R getting stolen thing. Actually, no i haven't !
Motul 300v every 1500 miles, its a proper synthetic.

A 60 weight oil does not sound like a good idea, thicker is not better neccesarily.
