Any suggestions for the best place to get oil changed?

And how often do you change your oil?

Depending on how you ride your bike would best suggest the way you change your oil. I do it after every track day or 1500 miles. Oil is cheap.

Sorry to jack this thread, mate.
Does the type of bike you have factor into the type of oil you use to refill?
03 zx9r. Would the Mobil 1 Full Synth Oil be ok for my bike? Thanks

I will Do it myself in the future, but I just moved, and the garage id still full of boxes that haven't been unpacked, so I have no "shop" to work in. So I'll pay for it to be done!

Thanks for the responses, I'm gonna visit Patrick this Saturday!
