600 mile service
« on: April 17, 2018, 09:23:50 PM »
Evening All
Quick question I have reached my 600 miles now but cant get the bike serviced for two weeks. As the weather is gong to be nice this week would I be okay to go over this mileage? Say to about 760 miles

No issues Paultheplumber!

My dealer told me to drive on at 'run-in' speeds as we waited for the weather to improve (last January).

I know this topic is a bit old but to anyone else having this issue, the first "service" is basically just an oil change to get the metal bits out of your oil. My dealer told me i would have to wait 3 weeks for my 600mi service so I just bought an oil change kit from them and did it myself @ 666miles.  Take it into the dealership when you can but tell them you already did the oil.  There are plenty of youtube videos showing you how to do the oil change yourself, it is very easy.

Thanks for the info Souper07 - I think we all tend to use the dealer even if it takes time and is overpriced to ensure we maintain warranty cover during those first two critical years . Without an authorised service stamp in the book the dealers may play hard ball on any issues/claims

That's good to know because I was thinking of changing my oil in-between the service schedule times. I think 9000 miles between oil changes is too much, mine did not feel or sound happy when it went in at 9000 miles. So at 13500 miles I'll give it a fresh charge.
Anything more than two wheels is unnecessary.

It seems to be the norm with Ducati dealers to require weeks notice for a service. Went to Bristol today and was told 2 weeks before it could be done. Booked it in but I'm in Portsmouth next week so I'll see if the dealer in Winchester can do it any earlier. Not very optimistic though.

Do not forget there is a dealer in Alton who are nearly as close. Not used them but have visited and they look ok
