With the Synthetic Oils, I've heard of 1,000 miles between changes. That seems to be pushing the envelope! I go between 5-600 hundred miles, or about every 6 weeks. I'm not sure how much wet clutch crap is in the oil. I do open the filter after every change, and also run my magnet through the drained oil. I'm not the right person to follow on this as I tend to change more often than not.

Same here I probably waste oil.I would think 5 or 600 miles would be good,depends how hard you run it.

Every 500 miles for me. The wet clutch sure makes the oil black fast. It almost cooks it. Now I see they have a 15 w 50 for summer. I will be going to that weight in the spring. For winter I will use 0 w 40. I changed my diff oils too this year. Not much in there and pan to get too. they say every four years for them. oil in them was fairly clean still.

I change the Turf Saver Diff. yearly, and it is black, must be the clutch pack.

I would say it is from having a clutch pack.

I changed mine every 600 miles and did my diffs quite frequently.. sometimes after one big run.. if it involved a lot of water and mud just to be on the safe side.
