Don't know about the Wing, but my VTX1300 had a 600mi checkup w/oil change. Something about the engine breaking in and getting rid of metal from wear.Just picked up a 2012 wing and it's quite a ride! The stealership recommended first maintenance at 600 miles for inspection and oil change. Is that really necessary? Seems a little ridiculous to me. Thanks and ride safe!
I just bought a 2012 model and the dealer told me to bring it back for the break in service at 1000 miles, then he said it's 600 miles.. I don't have the bike yet, so I don't know what the owner's manual says.The 2012 manual that came with my bike says the first oil change at 4000 and then every 8000 thereafter. The dealer I purchased it at knew this but the dealer near my work where I chose to have it serviced did not. The latter dealer service manager adamantly insisted that I had made a grave mistake. When I pointed out what the manual said (I have read the whole thing) he admitted he had not read the 2012 manual. He also said that regardless of the manual they still wanted to change it at 1500 miles. IMHO this is remnants of petroleum company propaganda from ages past. If the manufacturer of the motor tells you 4000/8000 than anything more than that is your personnal choice and should not be pushed by the dealer unless they preface the statement with the facts.
