Otherwise, as you say - the basis for an awesome dual sport
The Owners Manual shows 15 hr oil change intervals. So there are 2 questions...
a. If you follow the recmd of 15 hr, how far do you get on 15 hrs. History shows that usually a 8 hr riding day may yield 6 hrs of time at best, maybe less allowing for photos, food, BS, etc. Hence you would need to change oil every 3 days.
b. Are you really that religious on intervals? That is a personal issue...
Summary...Definitely a compromise.
