600 mile service

I'm contemplating bringing the V4 to a local ducati shop I trust for the 600 mile service. I've heard claims that this can or can't void a warranty, and you should/don't need to bring the bike to a dealer for its "first" service to check on any gremlins.

However, 5-600 for an oil change just sounds ridiculous to me. What did you guys do?

I took mine to the dealer. Cost was around 350 as I recall. They did an ECU update too and the bike seemed to make even more power. Also the quickshifter seemed to work better. For sure do not pay 5-600, but I think the first service is worth it for the updates and recall work(if needed). I doubt it would void the warranty if you do the oil change yourself using OEM parts and document everything. Might be worth it to have the dealer enter your VIN into the database and see what recalls and updates pop up.

Just my .02 cents:

stick with your dealer - its a no brainer - ok, if you need to do your own oil - but getting your ducati in to the shop on occasion (once a year?) isn't all that bad - as noted above, your updates recalls and general ducati tech know-how is what you get - if your shop isn't up to speed, then find the closest one that is - you need them as much as they need you

doing your own oil would not void your warranty....at least i've never heard that happening to anyone...hold your receipts
