First Oil Change!

2679 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?

I was told by the dealer here that the first service HAD to be done by them in order to maintain the warranty. I don't know if they were blowing smoke, or if it's true. It's going to cost $214 for the first service. After that, I'm doing the oil changes.
Pulled out my bill of sale and it says between 600-1000 miles for the first service....WOO HOO! Still have 600 miles to go, lol....
