Gold Wing 600 Mile Oil Change

I had my Wing's oil, filter, and final drive fluid changed at 600 miles, even though the dealer said it wasn't necessary. My rationale for servicing the Wing was because of what I experienced in Viet Nam working as a helicopter crew chief. The choppers had "magnetic" drain plugs. When a plug was pulled for inspection any metal filings present would adhere to the plug. Metal filings from new gear cogs may cause damage down the road, therefore, I changed the fluids.

I'm not a mechanic and don't really know if my theory is valid, but it works for me :)

Ride Safe and Happy Holidays,
T-Rex
