A little valve grinding paste dissolved in the oil keeps the engine nice and loose, and you don't really have to worry about the next oil change.

THIS.

+1

i had about 22,000 miles in my truck before i finally changed the oil. turns out the injectors didnt like the oil too much and stopped firing ( diesel F250)

i think i have about 30k miles on the oil in my bike. its noisy but still runs. one of these days it should blow up and then that will force me to either finish the turbo motor or build the race-spec motor i have on the bench now for it.

i may change the oil within 10k miles if i build something nice for the bike.

This is a good test engine for my oil mix- 2 quarts of Amsoil 10w-40 and the rest Rotella T 15w-40.

I found that the clutch and shifting for my cruiser are better, and the shifting for my 2008 ZZR600 is better, compared to either all Amsoil or all Maxima motorcycle oil.

Or you could just laugh and call me a retard and a moron <grin>.

It’s more fun to marvel at them, to appreciate them, to be grateful for them, and to mock them relentlessly. ”-from the 2010 book American Freak Show by Willie Geist.

Don't worry about that Jeff...

Of course I'm generalizing from a single example here, but everyone does that. At least I do.
