i just bought an 04 1000rr and it had 2900 miles on it. the owner said he had the oil changed at 500 miles and wasnt sure when the next oil change was due. does anyone know when i should change the oil? should i change it at 3000 or later?

Hah, I'm pretty bad with oil changes. I don't keep track of when I do them. I just kind of do them arbitrarily when I run out of other things to do, but I'm sure I go 4000-8000 miles between changing my oil. It's never caused any problems tho. Your bike is still new and has low mileage but go ahead and do your oil change now so you know when you did it and can go from there.

That oil has been in that bike over 4yrs. I'd change it right away.
I just read that too. how the hell does a 2004 have less then 3,000 miles? I've done that in a few weeks before... Do an oil change, you got old oil which I'm sure has broken down a bit. For all you know that oil is 5 years old.

just take a sample and send it out for analysis.. when you get the results they will let you know if it needs changed or not.

or you could just change it
