I read before that when changing BRANDS of semi-syn oil, you should flush with regular oil before adding different semi-syn. Is that true? I just bought a bike and want to change oils. If I need to flush, how long and should I change the filter twice?

you change the filter with every oil change. I see no reason to flush the engine with regular oil before changing brands of syn oil. Are you going from factory oil to syn oil?

No, just bought the bike off someone and he didn't have it long enough to change the oil and didn't ask the guy before.
