Picked up my bike from its initial 1000 mile service and all was good. Service manager did a great job explaining all that was done which I greatly appreciate considering the cost. I do plan on doing my own servicing from here on out. It was an extra $25 do use synthetic for all of the fluid changes so I opted for that. He said that the oil is a 5000 mile oil but he suggested looking closely at the oil around the 2500-3000 mile mark. If it looks like it needs changing, then do so. He knows I was doing my own service so money in his pocket was not the issue. What he does on his personal bike. Is he being too cautious or am I? Here in Lubbock heat is an issue so I am wondering if that might be why. I do ride 3-4 times per week and have put 1400 miles on it in less than 4 weeks so cold start/short rides won't be the issue. Sage wisdom would be appreciated!
