Late First Service
« on: May 19, 2017, 04:55:27 AM »
I rolled into the garage today 12 days in with 608 miles. My oil change kit won't be here for 4 days, best case. My question, will I jeopardize  my warranty or engine longevity running up to the dealer tomorrow  and arriving with 710 miles on the dial? As a retired mechanic, common sense says reasonably it shouldn't matter. However from my experience, common sense has nothing to do with warranty contractual obligation. I'm a noobie motorcycle owner, and would rather not have a documented unforced error. Thanks, T

I got mine two days ago with 758 miles on the clock, the service department said no problem. Hopefully if needed they will stand by that.

That sounds good. I'll call when they open. I'll ask for an email confirmation of appointment and a subtle approval of mileage overage, Print and file for reference. Thanks, T

I purchased my X as an ex demo bike with 1900 miles,  when I checked the service book it was stamped at 1058 miles for its first service and that's  from a Honda dealership!!!!!
I would not worry, as long as it's near the service mileage it's okay.

I phoned to book my 600mile service last week but they were busy - I had a short ride planned for the weekend, and was told not to worry too much, but to try to keep under 1000 miles, and that the warranty will be fine.

The big brown farkle delivery truck dropped my oil change kit at 9:30a on Monday. I test fitted tools to preclude power tool screw buggering and set work station. Removed lower cowl then warmed bike to 147F, by gauge at filter. Of course the phone rings, 45min later reheat and drain. Cleaned during drain. Resealed and refilled engine. Rewarmed, leak-checked and reassembled. Torqued cowling with a drop of blue thread lock on each of the S.S. screws.
If not for overthinking and searching for procedure, I wouldn't have used aluminum foil as an oil drain shield and most likely would have started with the center stand. Thanks to forum members guidance with your experiences, 658 miles oil changed, checked and out by 11:00a.

 " An independent mechanic, a retail chain shop, or even you yourself can do routine maintenance and repairs on your vehicle. In fact, the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, which is enforced by the FTC, makes it illegal for manufacturers or dealers to claim that your warranty is void or to deny coverage under your warranty simply because someone other than the dealer did the work. "
It is the manufacturer or dealers responsibility to prove beyond a doubt that anything you did caused any failure .
