For those of you who followed the manufacturer's break-in recommendation did you change your oil after 1,000 miles :?:

I changed mine @ 200 miles (didnt know what was in it)..then @ 500 miles.. when I reach 1000 I'll change again then every 1500 or so after that..Using Kawasaki 10-40 for break-in..Go w/ Motul later..BTW, I'm following break-in rules but adding 2000 rpms above what manual says..

Each time i do an oil change the filter goes as well (personal preferance). I don't use Kawi's oil though. How Long before synthetic?? mmmmm good question, i'd say no less than 1k.

Did you change your filter as well or just the oil? You recommend using 10-40 Kawasaki oil right? For how long do you use it before you start using synthetic? Does anyone know the fram part number for the oil filters?
Synthetic vs. mineral is another religious discussion. I use the Kawi filter myself. They are around $10 from Ron Ayers.
