Someone, somewhere else in one of these forums had their dealership tell them they'd be fine as long as they kept it under 1,000. Someone else will likely have a better and more conclusive answer than mine though.My "first service light" just came on @ 630 miles. It might be a couple of days till I can get an appointment. So my question is …. how many miles post light should be a safe amount. How many miles have some of you gone past?
hey silver, looks like water was mixed with it...strange lookingMy oil looked like a human brain in the oil pan for some reason. Also, it was full of metal shavings. I changed it at 623 miles.
You can change the oil as often as you want.....as long as you do the required services stated by Ducati.^ We can't change our own oil??? Geez
good suggestionOwners manual and warranty information both say 600 miles/1000 km. Regardless of what the service manager tells you Ducati materials control. Get in at 600 miles to be sure your warranty is not challengeable for noncompliance.
Then can we do our own service(oil changes) and still be covered under warranty? Or does it need to be done by Ducati to be covered?You can change the oil as often as you want.....as long as you do the required services stated by Ducati.
The 600 / 1000 service is an indication, so if you would do 500 miles or 700 miles before service it is ok.
On our Hyperstrada we did the changing of the sparkplugs at 10000 miles service ourselves. Dealer was happy with that and didn't make an issue of it.
Was about 1 hour of work for a 2 minute job.
