Since when does a low RPM, 4stroke, water cooled motor need an oil change every 600 mi?
Is this for real?

If you average 12 MPH this works out to be 50 hours running time. My Kohler in the Cub Cadet says 50 hrs between changes, my Cessna decided 25 hours between changes unless a filter is installed then it's 50 hrs.
Consider your transmission and clutch are beating the daylights out of the additives and 600 miles isn't so bad.

Remember that the transmission shares the oil with the engine, and it has a wet clutch. Keep the oil clean, the clutch will be happy.
