Guide to When to Change Motorcycle Oil

By -


IF you want to have a motorbike that will last, the only way is to maintain it properly and regularly. One of the most important maintenance steps is to change the lubricant or oil regularly and according to instructions. However, some motorbike users are still confused about when is the right time to change the oil. According to the owner of Modifika, a specialist vehicle service and upgrade workshop, Agus Arianto, motorbike owners can find complete information about when to change the oil in the manual. This book must be included when buying a motorbike.

"Actually and in general, it is recommended to change the oil every 2,000 kilometers or once a month, so see which comes first," explained Agus in his official statement, Friday (7/7). By changing the oil regularly, the vehicle engine will be well maintained and provide good performance and efficiency.

Check the manual 

The first step that must be taken is to refer to the manual. It contains specific information regarding the recommended oil change schedule. Motorcycle manufacturers have conducted careful research and testing to determine the appropriate intervals based on the condition of the engine and the type of oil used. 


Oil change intervals are often determined based on mileage. In general, oil changes are recommended every 3,000 to 5,000 kilometers, depending on the type of motorbike and usage environment. If your motorbike is frequently used in extreme conditions, such as traveling in hot temperatures or driving in heavy traffic, then you may need to consider changing the oil more frequently. 

Oil life 

Apart from mileage, oil age is also an important factor. Engine oil has a lifespan, regardless of mileage. Oil can oxidize and become contaminated with engine dirt over time. If the motorbike is often used in heavy conditions or is inactive for a long time, it is recommended to change the oil every 6 months or according to the manufacturer's recommendations. 

Driving style and environment 

Driving style and the environment in which you ride the motorbike also influence the oil change time. If you often drive with high acceleration, accelerate and brake suddenly, or use the motorbike to carry heavy loads, the oil will experience greater pressure and degrade more quickly. If driving in a dusty or muddy environment, these particles can contaminate the oil more quickly. (Z-6)
