Getting ready to change my oil;question is I'm seriously debating the synthetic vs conventional.I have always used mobile one in my cars and trucks but does anyone else us  it for their bikes and do you stretch out your intervals a little longer?

Reviews I have seen of Mobil 1 and Amsoil say all you need to do is change the filter very 8-10k and top it off.

I run Mobil 1 racing 4t. I could seriously feel a difference.

I know when I switched to Royal Purple my bike engine temp dropped and shifts/runs a lot smoother.

I agree all I have ever had in my bike is amsoil or Mobil one I refuse to use any other especially when they turn Roma like mine.  [sport]

For the past 30+ years I have run Synthetic in all my bikes.  For the past 15 years I have been hooked on Golden Spectra.  I change oil and filter at least every 5K, unless going on a long trip.  That may change my interval.  Usually 3-3.5K miles.  I ride year round so I don't worry about time.
