    Is the dealer right

    My father bought a 2007 ultra and when he got 15 hours on it he called the dealer to schedule his first oil change. The dealer told him to wait until there is 40 hrs on it. Does this sound right?

    The first maintenance is at 10 hours. It includes an oil and filter change and inspection of all the hoses.

    I told him the same thing but the dealer said that people change their oil to soon and they don't give the engine time to break in

    I did my first oil change with less than 2 hours on the meter. I wanted to get whatever assembly and break-in contaminents out of there fast...

    The 10 hr service is to
    (1) inspect supercharger drive belt for dear/damage and belt tension
    (2) check all hoses hose clamps nuts, bolts and fastners.

    Engine oil is to be changed at (50) hr. and filter at 100 or once a year.

    This is per service manual.

    This being said I personally do not wait this long. This is straight from the service manual, it is also in the owners manual.

    I am with you. Oil is inexpensive, the engine is not. I personally do not think you can change the oil too often during the break in period.

    Yep, and then after 10 hours I 'm pretty sure i'm going w/ amsoil 15-40 full synthetic with 15-20 hour changes... cheap insurance against fuel dilution and possible cylinder damage.

    P.S. I finally convinced my buddy to change the oil in his 15F after 40 hours, it might as well have been water, the lubricating qualities of th 10-40 he had in there were GONE it was completly broken down.

    Dealers Don't always think before they speak.

    I heard one person from the service department recommend that they don't go to synthethic because "they would not be able to get all of the Regular oil out and you don't want to mix the two types of oil".

    How about passing along the technical reasons why this is not an issue.

    Id change the oil every 12hrs or so and the filter every 24 or 36. Yes thats alot but the fuel dilution in the oil is incredible.
