He just seems like a new guy that doesnt know much about his bike like he said. Im not saying thats a good thing because there is no doubt he should have taken the time to learn how to do regular maintenance and how to ride the bike without tearing it up but he is asking now so lets focus more on helping him out instead of making fun of him.

I would like to hear how the clutch got tore up though because with only 3000 miles on it, that had to be some extreme abuse or horrible adjustment to smoke it that fast!

And the post was kinda confusing but if he could explain it a little more in depth with a little more detail, we would be able to understand it.

Just curious man and by no means am i trying to be a but im sure they had to tell you about properly breaking in the bike when you bought it right? Even if they didnt, didnt you know that yourself?

Brand new bike off the showroom floor and already doing burnouts is not the best idea but when they did your clutch, they had no choice but to change the oil because they had to crack the case to replace the burnt up clutch and fill it back up with oil when it was fixed.

But the answer to your question is yes, you need an oil change and it would be best to continue doing them every 2000-2500 miles or so. I would also check your chain to make sure its not too loose and lube it and it wouldnt be a bad idea to check tire pressure and just do a complete walk around to make sure everything is tight.

A good tire pressure is 36 front, 34 rear.

Id really avoid burnouts and all that mess. All it does it tear up your tire much faster and leaves stubborn sticky rubber stuck under the tail of the bike that isnt much fun to scrub off unless you just dont care and leave it there. lol

Carlos, hey man I am not too far from you. Over here by JC. Jacinto City. Your actually just down the road from me. PM me when you have some free time and I am willing to help point you in the right direction. I should be off on Friday. I know how it is being new to the bike maintenance part .
I am not a certified motorcycle mechanic- but this isnt y 1st rodeo either.
And its beneficial to actually *know* your bike than to learn the hard way when/why something is broke.

Hes an 18 year old kid, 18 year old kids do ignorant things sometimes(Lord knows i did), i am just glad he hasnt killed himself on it.

Hopefully, a lesson has been learned.
