I found out today, that they want $90 to change the oil on my Fury, WOW!!!!!

I purchased a 1500lbs, motorcycle jack from Harbor Freight, 4 quarts of oil of Lucas 10W40 sync blend, and tomorrow I will go buy the filter. They were going to charge me $60 bucks for labor, after I purchased the oil and filter, that’s amazing..

I pay less for my Vette after I buy the oil and filter, what a racket…

I need to save my money for my new C&C solo seat :cool:

I do my own oil changes and that is the only way to go if you are able. I would suggest a full synthetic oil and not a blend and once you go syn. --stay syn.

Full Synthetic costs a little more but I am sold on it.

Werd!

I use Castrol Syntec in my truck and Amsoil in my ATVs. The moto will be getting the same treatment next service.

500 mile dealer service

when i bought my fury from the dealer they told me i had to bring the bike back to them at the 500 mile mark for oil change in engine and drive shaft. Then to check my valve sets for proper seating. Anyone else get told the same thing?

How can i get my photo to post on my reply instead of a question mark?

Thanks

Yep. Told that and did it. Valve job can only be done (according to my dealer) when bike is completely cold. Had to leave it overnight. Very little adjustment there.

Where did the $500 come into the picture?
Yeah. Where did that come in???? I think it ran about $150 total for the complete 1st service including the Valve adjust.:rolleyes:

Anybody know what regular brand oil filters will work for replacement? I'd prefer not to purchase the overpriced honda filters and find one by Wix or Bosch. I see Wix 51365 works for other VTX1300 bikes, so that should probably work.

My 600 mile service was $179, Oil and filter suggestions are appreciated since I will be doing this myself.
