Wow.. It use to be when you bought a new car "not sure about bikes' the manufacturer would use a break in oil that was a lighter viscosity. Once you had 500 mi. you would change the oil to get rid of the break in oil and all the metal that was from the break in.
Most people did not even know about the break in oil, but only knew that they were to change oil at 500 mi.
The MoCo says 1000 mi. I personally changed mine at 500 mi. just for peace of mind.
As for the big oil debate I'm all synthetic now but ,you should have your engine completly broken in before changing from dino oil. Most cam manufactures caution about using synthetic untill you properly break in your cam with fosil oil.
The biggest difference is cost and peace of mind. Just my .02:D
