I was told the first servicing for the Fury is @ 500 miles ........ I am assuming this is true but has anyone else heard otherwise ??

Thanks from N.Y.

My dealer told me it's called the 600 mile break in period service, however, it can be done at anytime between 600 & 1000 mile.

My dealer said at 600mi. then every 4000!
The stuff they list to do at 4000 is pretty small and basic:

check the spark plugs
check the engine idle speed
check the brake fluid
check the brake pads
check the clutch

I wouldn't take it to a mechanic to check these things unless I didn't have any idea what these thing mean.

I gave mine it's first oil and filter change @ 200 miles.

I'll change the oil and filter again and set the valves @ 600 miles.
There is a question i was waiting to hear asked/answered...when is a good time for the first oil change? Any opinions/maybe a how too? My dealer said I shouldnt have any needs/worries as far as maintenance untill around 600-800 miles. So what is everyone else's opinion.

hooo boy, I'm not sure if we should go down this path.. in so many motorcycle forums the topic of 'Oil' is a religious one :)

I see no harm in doing an oil and filter change both well before 600 miles and at 600 miles. I just prefer to get the really particle laden first couple of hundred mile oil out of there, even though in theory the oil filter should be catching any particles that are large enough to cause damage to the engine.
It might be doing some good, but I really don't know. I assume that it's doing no harm.

Modern Triumphs are said to use a special break-in oil (different from the full-synthetic that they specify for normal use), it supposedly can hurt the break-in period if this break-in oil is replaced by full synthetic (not enough wear-in will occur or something).
