First Oil Change!

2675 Views 10 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  jol
My first oil change went very well. I even cleaned the screen on the Engine Oil Sump. I used 3 quarts of Valvoline 4 Stroke motor oil, 10W40 and a K&N filter. Now I can crank that baby up to 3/4 throttle! I changed the final drive 90w oil also. All I could find was 80w90 weight final drive oil. I went to several places so I assume that is ok to use.?
Only 400 miles to go, then its full throttle all the time.........uh, full throttle if needed and that would be in RARE occasions of course!
One mechanic told me that if I use synthetic oil in the S50 it could void my warranty if anything went wrong, so I will wait till the warranty is up before I use synthetic oil.
Next I find a more comfortable seat. Any suggestions?

Same here going to cost around 250.00 for first break in service, I did go past the 600 mile mark by about 700 miles, going to get it into shop soon.
Recommended is correct. but I'll still feel better once the first one is done. I just hate missing any days of riding.
