Changing oil.. on your own do you break the warrenty?

Hey Everybody,

I have a question. Do you break the factory warranty if you change the oil yourself????

No! It's usually recommended to have the dealer do the 1000 mile service, but after that you can do your own oil changes, just keep records and receipts in case of a warranty issue later.

You can do all maintenance on your bike with out having a warranty issue, unless you FU.something.

If I have to explain ,you wouldn't under stand anyway.

If you have a good dealer, no problem doing all your own maintenance. If you have a dealer struggling for money or greedy, they are going to pressure you to have all your service performed by them. If a dealer ties service to warranty, run fast and run far.


You only need to keep receipts and records if you have a poor relationship with your dealer, or if you have an internal engine issue that they want to fight you on.

I buy my first two service supplies from the dealer so I have a record that I used them for the parts. I keep a log of when I performed my service and at what miles.
