The only reason it can be bad for your engine is if you change the oil filter. If I remember correctly, there is some short interval before the oil fully flows. It is probably nonsense.I go by the book unless something requires me to get in the engine between changes. Had a stator go this summer and then a leak after the repair so I've done 3 changes this summer.
I'll have to do some digging but I've read some articles saying changing your oil to frequently can actually be bad for your engine. I cringe when I see bikes for sale that say "oil changed every 500-1000 miles"
Again, I have to find the article or video and it's been awhile but if I remember correctly it said something about oil preforming better after being "broken in".
Kawi says 12k, I try to shoot for 10-12k. If I do a lot of riding in the rain or dirt I shorten that a little.
I just added air filter pods to my intake so I'm curious to see if the oil stays cleaner for longer this go around.
I am curious about your filter pods. What are they?
I personally believe that changing oil according to manufacturer recommendations is bad for the engine. They want you to buy a new bike as soon as possible.
