Every fall I change the oil and filter no questions asked however this summer I only rode the thing 50 miles. What are your thoughts on changing it, some people say fresh oil before storage and other people say run it until next year, is full syn oil. let me know your thoughts

I was told by a mechanic at work to change oil in all engines, regardless of miles or hours of use, at least once a year.

As for me I always change once a year no matter what, it is just cheap insurance

with synthetic oil you wouldnt have any problems letting it go till next year, but if you have the time, and extra cash, then it's not a big deal.
I run regular oil in my tractors, but syn. in the four wheelers. I do change the tractor oil every year, but not the quads.
