dont forget to use torque wrench to put the bolt back.....do a search and see how many people fucked that little bolt up while changing the oil

At what mile can you go over to syn? My bike is around 550 miles now and I'm about to do the first service.

I went by mototunes break in method and dropped the oil at 20 miles
There were a noticable amount of small metal pieces in the oil which made me feel good I dropped it then. So far so good, but I wouldnt go to synthetic until about 1000 miles, but that is just me. I like to be sure the rings break in good before using synthetic.

Good luck

All your rings seal within your first 20 miles or so. I say you put in whatever good type of oil you want. I went synthetic at 500 miles and it felt much nicer and the bike works perfect. Later,
