Dealer said they had to do 1K service to keep factory warranty!

Dealer told my son-in-law they had to do 1K service to keep factory warranty in place. I am sure this is not true and I am thinking about doing my 1K service on new RG. I am at 700 miles and my local dealer wants $350 to do it. I cannot believe how out of line these dealers are on this service.

If I do my and keep receipts am I all good for my warranty?

Any other recommendations you guys can give if I do my own 1K service?

None of my Harley's has ever been serviced by the dealer, only from me and I haven't had any problems getting a warranty work if needed. Save your money and try and do it yourself if you have the time to do it.

Go and Google the 1K checklist and do it yourself. Not only easy but fun. A perfect 6 pack day!! $350.00 for an oil change is crazy.

Do all my own service and no problems with warranty work. Keep your receipts and youll be good to go if they even ask, which they probably wont. Youll be out less than $100 if you do it yourself. Thats including manual, oils, filter, orings and derby gasket. If you dont reuse, which at 1k you could and be fine. Nothing you cant do yourself...and you'll know it was done right! Services are done by the lowest newby in the shop.

I agree it is a crazy cost the dealers charge. I told my son-in-law this was not correct but he wanted to be on safe side. He is very handy and can do his own without any trouble. I never once took my Deuce in to a dealer but I thought I might my RG just for the 1K service but I think I would just be throwing money away if I do.

I think I will do my own and watch a few more youtube videos on it and read the manual good and I am good to go.

Just need to decide what oil to use along with primary transmission. I always used Mobil 1 V twin in Deuce.

Redline is good all around, but ive been using formula+ in the primary lately. And get a k&n filter with the nut welded on the end and do yourself a favor. Waaaay eaier to remove an install.

Where are you buying K&N filter with nut? It has been a while since I have done this. I used to get Mobil 1 and filter at Wal Mart. I would rather stay out of that place. Does local auto parts store have it?

Advance Auto Parts has the K&N filter with the nut.

I fell for that 1k mile service bullshit. $350 for the dealer to check their assembly work is a rip off. Do it yourself. You'll end up having to check everything after you get it back from the dealer anyhow

Thanks for all the good advice; I am going to do my own, just been shopping on ebay got Mobil 1 vtwin for less than $10/quart delivered also found a good deal on a couple of K & N filters I like the nut idea really well my Deuce filter was always a bi... to get off.

I just need to decide on trans and Primary looking at Redline, Lucas and HD Formula.

Just did my 1k service, went down the entire check list. After checking everything it amounted to changing the fluids, probably just what the dealer does. Under $100, I use Amsoil.
