Question first 600 mile service

Okay, so, can this be done on your own?
I'm pretty sure you would need the service manual, right?

Find the numbers and then check the tourque on all the bolts. You can do everything else pretty much with the owners manual.

Are you using standard oil for your first change or full synthetic?

If you are located on West side hit me up man, I'll give it once over checking critical parts and settings and show you what needs to be done to change your oil and send yah on your way.... Won't take me 10 min to do that for you and gives you a little piece of mind and keeps $$ in your pocket!
