Go by the OLM on the DIC and you'll be fine. There is no logical reason to go by a set mileage anymore.jls1958 said:Just wondering do u go by miles / kilometers or by Oil Life thingy...Im at 4700km's and still oil life at 54% So fighting off urge to do oil change by kilometers and go by oil life thing a ma gig .... having second thoughts bout it............
I would too, assuming this would be the first oil change on the brand new motor, I would change out at 4,500 or 5,000 km's.jls1958 said:Just wondering do u go by miles / kilometers or by Oil Life thingy...Im at 4700km's and still oil life at 54% So fighting off urge to do oil change by kilometers and go by oil life thing a ma gig .... having second thoughts bout it............
We use Amsoil exclusively (except for the bikes) GARYD, but like you, we don't go near the 15k mark either, 'old school' for sure,,, lol [/color]GARYD said:Like OnxBear, I would do the first oil change at 1000 miles or sooner. Then after that I normally change twice a year or 7500 miles on my 6 cyl....... maybe more often if I had the 4 cyl.
I'd like to try Amsoil's once a year or 15k mile oil, but can't bring myself to do it. Old school I guess, I can't imagine going that long between changes. Who knows, some day maybe.
There is a Harley Dealer not too far away. The Amsoil website recommends certain distributors.GARYD said:If you use a lot of oil, you can become a dealer. Or if you don't use a lot you can get a Preferred Customer account.
I sell to the members in my HOG chapter at cost as a convenience.
If you go to Amsoil website you can look up a dealer near you and see if they give a discount. Some stores even sell Amsoil, most Harley dealers do.
If you have not done the first initial oil change, then do it asap.mytrain said:Mine is at 61% and I have 4400 miles on her. Help!
