2013-2023 Honda CB500F/R/X: Oil and Filter Change
Time: 15-30min (warm up)
Interval: 8,000 miles or annualy (OEM), however 2,000-5,000 miles is common based on riding style
Oil cleans, lubricates, cools, and protects the engine internals. When it breaks down, it can't do that as effectively leading to wear and leaks. Motorcycles tend to live in extremes. They're either ridden hard, or they go months without being ridden at all. When ridden, oil breaks down from heat, shearing action, contamination, etc. When the bike sits, moisture from venting to atmosphere doesn't have the opportunity burn off causing the oil to sludge and become caustic to metal parts.
If you ride hard, change the oil frequently. If you ride rarely, change the oil at least annually.
