Oil changes?

I did a little search and couldn't figure out consensus on this topic.

Do you all change per miles or per duration (days/months) ?

Some of us will never get 3K in a year, so whats the solution to a situation like that?

With oil being a lot more advanced and engines being way more efficient, the whole 3K/3M thing seem a little bit of waste IMO.

Whats all your thoughts?

Mine's done every 6000km. I easily do that in about 6 months though.

Once every year. Otherwise you're just waisting your oil. That's just one man's opinion.

I would suggest not to exeed MV's given milage, keep in mind that oil in a motorcycle aging faster as in a car due the wet clutch & gearbox attributes

I do mine every 2000km , its quick and easy and oil is cheap. Granted I do some track days in those 2000km. That's about the time it starts getting dark.

Do check your oil for silver glitter. Mine is at 10000km and I'm still getting aluminium glitter in the oil so I will keep changing oil at 2000km until its clear.

Oil change should be done every 15,000km(9,000 miles) according to MV Agusta. http://www.mvagusta.net/forum/attach...hmentid=237346

Ducati 1299 Panigale, Kawasaki ZX10R, Yamaha R1, etc... all recommend every 12,000km(7,500 miles) but I guess MV has longer maintenance interval.

Some people said that you can even go a little longer too.

Changing oil every 2,000 km is not only waste of your money, but waste of our limited resources.
Oil technology has improved significantly compare to back in the day, frequent change is not needed especially you use synthetic.

If you do Google research, there are so many article showing all the lab results about how oil barely even downgraded at 10,000+ miles.

Turismo Veloce every 15000km all the other MV's 6000km. The power and torque on the TV is much lower than on the other bikes so it doesn't stress the engine's internal parts as much.

I change every year or mileage, whichever comes first.

Turismo Veloce 800
