When I bought my 1st H-D in 1994, my dealer, at that time, told me to put 500 miles on it to break it in and bring her in to change the oil which was a free courtesy change . Now I'm living in another part of the U.S., and bought a 2003 Electra Glide and this dealer is telling me that they don't do the oil change until the 1000 mile period. Anyway, I'm going to change the oil myself at 500, but my question is aren't you suppose to change the oil after 500 miles on any new engine that you are breaking in??

I do intend to change the oil and filter at 1K as well. What I'm trying to get at is on any engine that is new or rebuilt, isn't it common practice to change oil and filter at 500 miles??

LOL...........How did we get into synthetic????? I thought I was just asking a simple question which was "isn't it a general rule to change oil and filter at 500 miles on new and/or rebuilt engines"? LOL:D :p
