I made sure I saved this thread so that I can refer back to it. I have the service manual, but this is great!

1000 Mile Service Question

Thanks for the write up, pictures and step by step tutorial. If it wasn’t for that I would have had second thoughts about doing it myself.
I started the 1000 mile service today and it's my first time, so my concern is that I went and bought SYN3 for the motor and transmission and bought the Formula+ Lubricant for the Primary. Should I have done the Formula+ in the transmission also?
I haven't put the derby cover back on yet, because I was short 6oz of the Formula+ and I will be getting that later on today. Will I be okay or should I just buy two more quarts of SYN3, drain the Primary again and just go with the SYN3 in all three holes?
I also bought a new set of bolts for the Derby cover with the Allen vs. Torx. Had a hard time with two of the Torx bolts removing the cover.

You should be ok using S3 in the transmission. I never used synthetic oil until I bought my CVO so I'm not an expert on it.

**********january 23, 2013. I have just been informed that steps 13-19 are missing from this thread. I don't know what happened but they're gone. I am currently traveling and will not be able to fill in the blanks for a few weeks.*********

Great write up. Has already saved me major buckage. Thanks BDMastiff!

Now, does anyone have pictures of adjusting the steering head bearing as part of the service? :-D Had the dealer do it but they wimped out and didn't tighten it enough and its still got a "clunk" when I brake and severe shudder when braking from 45+ MPH with front brake.

Awesome post!! I just helped a buddy do a 10,000 mile on his bike, and I'm glad to see that we did it right!!
Mine is next... (his was practice )


Money can't buy you happiness, but it CAN buy you a Harley Davidson, which is awfully close...
