In regards to "Oil Change Intervals" same as my other vehicle. I always change my oil every 6 months regardless of mileage since if I follow the mileage route I would go more than a year before I change oil. When it comes with the Stryker I follow the maintenance schedule in regards to lube and check the mechanical/electrical components but follow my every 6 month rule when it comes to changing oil.
I used to use mobil 1 on everything. Not anymore, I use pennzoil....

I put my kickstand down with my hand.
