The manual say an initial change should be after break-in.
It really doesn'y say by mileage or hours. It did show initial maint at 600 mi on the tables in section 3. that seems long.
Anyone have a good idea when the first change should be?

Thanks

I do mine after the first 100 miles. Then after the next 150. My typical routine maintenance is 150 miles, depending on the conditions...

Bikes are expensive and oil is very cheap so you can't change it too early. The sooner you get those metal particles out the better. I would change it at 25 miles and again at 100.
