First service done early

I just bought a 2009 Suzuki gsxr 600 last week and have place 300 or so miles on it. This week im planning to ride back to Cali which is around 1100 miles from denver. Should i just do an oil change before I head out or bring my bike into a dealership early for the 600 mile mandatory service.

Re: First service done early

That's a tough call. The oil in it is essentially break-in oil, and running it steady for a long distance is generally bad for break-in. Given the simplicity of an oil-change, consider picking a point on the trail that is a good candidate for doing an oil change at the 500-700 mile mark. If you coordinate it in advance, I bet they'll accomodate you with a very short delay.
