600 mile service necessary?

i change my oil and do all maintenance myself, iv been told they dont touch the valves anyways, so am i fine with changing the oil checking other fluids, does coolant really need to be changed at this point also? maybe someone has their own list of what needs to be done.

No. He actually means 600. From what I have been told, around that mark, it's where everything has started to "settle in", so to speak, dependent on your riding habits up to that point.

I would recommend: (And this is just my opinion)

Oil change
Coolant change
Brake pad check
Air filter check (but probably not needed, unless riding in dusty areas)


Any one else care to chime in? Patrick?

Change oil & filter
Clean, lube, adjust chain if necessary
Check all fastners
Visually look over everything, checking for leaks, misalignment, loose stuff and get to know where everything is.
Check tire pressure

Read your owners manual !! It has some good info in it.

Ride and enjoy.

First recommended oil change is at 600 miles.
Prior to that your sump is filled (by the factory) with oil designed to assist running/breaking/bedding in ie. less lubricative properties.

but metal bits are bad. Might as well change the oil within the first 20-40 miles.
