    I personally wouldn't go over 50hrs for a stock machine, excess oil changes can't hurt anything

    I change it every 10-15 hours. Change the filter every other time.

    Why so often? I'm as OCD about our skis as the next guy, but shit every 10-15? I do every 50 hours.

    I change mine every 5 hours on the Dot or as close to it as I can. I change the oil filter every 4th times I change the Oil. You cant change your Oil enought. It's a cheep insurance for your ski.

    Damn, I would have to stop in the middle of my day riding to change it every 5 hours. I have ridden well over that in a single day

    LoL I'm sure I change it to much, but I just feel better doing it every weekend. I put about 5hr a weekend when I go riding. Unless I stay more than 2-3 Days. I always take my Oil Pump and Oil just incase I go over.

    I change mine every time we stop for a break....
    Honestly for most folks at a minimum twice a year is ideal along with plugs. Once before riding season and once after riding season using Labor day and Memorial day as a guide. This limits all those contaminants sitting in the engine during your off peak season. I am not sure where you live, but many folks even here in Fl stop riding after Labor day.
    I tend to change mine at least 4 times a year. Maybe about every 20 hours and the first one at 10 hours, which reminds me, I am at 9 hours and need to change my oil...
