Here are a couple articles that provide pretty good info:
The author is a Chemist, retired from a major Oil and Chemical Company, after a career in the Quality Assurance of Fuels, Lubricants, and Chemical products. He and his wife both ride.

Motorcycle Motor Oil
http://www.yft.org/tex_vfr/tech/oil.htm

\"Will changing the oil even more frequently, like every 1,000 miles, prolong the life of the engine? Not very likely, because even at 3,000 to 4,000 miles, the oil and additives are not degraded very much. Changing more often just wastes money.\"

Oil Filter Alternatives
http://www.yft.org/tex_vfr/tech/oilfilter.htm

\"Use of an automotive filter could be a benefit, if you really want the best protection. Newer high-performance filters like the Bosch and the Mobil 1 really are better and not more expensive. Instead of traditional paper filtration, they use a synthetic or mixed paper/synthetic medium that removes up to 98% of 8 to 10 micro particles, where conventional premium paper filters only remove 70% to 90%.\"
