You wonder why no one likes dealers... They are all mis-informed twits... :headbang: Corvetts roll off the assembly line with Mobil 1 synthetic oil in their crank cases....I was told, by the dealer, not to use anything but normal oil in this bike for at least ten thousand miles. The change it so something else if you choose.
You know I heard the same thing from a local dealer (not where I purchased the bike). It doesnt make sense to me why you would need to use dino oil for the first 10,000. I cant get my brain around that one.I was told, by the dealer, not to use anything but normal oil in this bike for at least ten thousand miles. The change it so something else if you choose.
Don't feel the least bit awkward about that routine - you saved yourself any issues that could have arisen. A coupla quarts of oil is cheap - I'da done the same thing.I changed oil at 100, 300, and 600 miles. Similar to you, after inspection the oil seemed pretty clean, not much metal at all. If I could do it over again I'd probably still change oil/filter, however, knowing what I know now I wouldn't have a problem letting it go.
