You'd think so. I still do 6k oil changes, per BMW - not.sure.why the assertion oil changes should be more frequent, that's what the oil filter is for. BUT! - no more Mobil 1 (speaking of.oil threads) since.it.doesn't have friction modifiers needed for the wet clutch. And one does NOT want to put new.plates in this clutch (ka-ching!) from.ruining them.with the wrong oil. The wedge.motor wet clutch (k12/13) is very spendy, parts alone north of $1600, and some folks seem to run theirs pretty hard, requiring.frequent replacements. I'm at 64k miles and.am not looking forward.to replacing it when.it.wears.out. At 76k on my dry clutch KRS, the disc showed little wear when the rear main seal let go. At the 56k interval I had.a cam chain jump guard installed on this bike, requiring.pulling the clutch -, this one will not last as long as the dry disc did for.me... YMMV.
