Download the service manual. If I remember correctly, oil and oil filter change and a few inspections of various areas of the bike. My dealer wanted upwards of $100 to $200! Ha! So, I did it myself... a few bucks for the oil and filter, oil filter wrench, a little elbow grease! It took approx. 30-40 minutes. Done!I don't pick up my bike until tomorrow but wondered if the first service is due at 600 miles like most seem to be. Also, what's involved other than just an oil and filter change? Last, what's the average cost for the first service at the dealer? Thanks.
Something you may have overlooked - synthetic oil has a MUCH HIGHER "film strength" than ordinary oil does, and that factor MAY save your engine if something goes 'south' on you.Can't really argue with those who choose to use synthetic however I find that personally I change my oil and filter at about half the the recommended mileage. Therefore, I'm keeping good fresh oil in the motor so no need for the added expense of synthetic. But that's just me.
