    I know they seem to get funnier about owners doing there own maintainance. I git the 5 year extended warranty on my 11 ultra. I do my own fluid changes. I am thinking save all reciepts? When can I switch over to synthetic fluids? I will do the first change at 1000 miles.

    It's all about documentation!!! Keep your receipts from all your service purchases!!! You can change to synthetic whenever you want to..

    I change it over when I get it home, then break it in. Save your receipts and you shouldn't have any problems.

    NO Syn 3, but the other two choices are good.

    Is the bike home in your garage...?? If so, why isn't it changed now...no need to wait. Like glider said - do the 30/60/30 in 3rd x10 new engine break-in & get the good stuff in there.
