Oil change interval on 2017 Brutale

Hi all... I have a 2017 Brutale 800 and I have just hit 4500 miles. I did the first service per the manual at 1000 miles and I just got a message on the dash that I'm due for service. But when I check the manual, it says an oil change is every year or 9000 miles. I called the dealer and he said it's supposed to be 3000 miles by "rule of thumb" and he doesn't know why the manual says 9000. And I would understand 3000 if these used conventional oil, but synthetic should be able to hold up much longer. So what's the deal? Anyone know why it says I need service but the manual says otherwise?

Sam

Your manual has a misprint.

Interesting, because the 15k or 9k miles interval is also in the TV manual. I've been wondering this since I first saw it, because it does seem 'long' for oil that's used to lubricate/cool an engine, transmission and clutch. If I was faced with this situation, I think I'd get the oil tested (at half, then full service interval) to see if the oil is still serviceable.

I don't think so. Maintenance schedules are changed with the introduction of the modelyear 2017 [ euro4]

The reason why the TS gets a message at 4500 miles is unclear. It could be because it's 1 year ago since the last [1000 miles] service [time related], or in a worst case scenario he owns a 2016 model with a 2017 manual.

Check your VIN, the 10th position should be a "H"!

It could be because of the default settings in the diagnostic tool as well, or worse, what the tech put in as the service reminder mile after completing the last service (because he didn't read the current manual for the bike).

This... I think the problem is that the service techs don't know and just put in the wrong reminder. This is def a 2017 and there were a lot of changes made to the engine. I also was told that the new Ducatis have 9k service intervals as well.

TBH i doubt if a service technician even hooks up the diagnostic tool, the reset can be done by accessing the "dealer menu". That's set & ok buttons simultaneously pressed for more than 10 sec.


Unfortunately it's pretty common that service intervals are manipulated by so - called "official dealers" mainly to get some cashflow. You see it all the time around you, in cars, bikes or whatever needs scheduled maintenance. be aware of it

Surely the 2016 model year bike is identical to a 2017; all the mods, frame, swing arm, engine mods, bodywork etc. were all new for what is known as the 2016, at least in Europe. Just because a bike is first registered in 2016 does not make it a 2016 model year bike. It's easy to tell by the seat unit which is completely different and has a gap underneath it.

It's a definite maybe.

..Quite some differences between MY 2016 & MY 2017, Euro 4 complaint revised engine internals & cilinder head etc etc.

The only correct way to determine your model year is the 10th position of your vin!

Thanks for this info. I went out and confirmed my 2017 had H in the 10th position of VIN. I wasn't clear on the differences here in the USA between 2016 and 2017, because several reviews for the 2016 would talk about all new engine euro compliance, yada yada.....so figured the 16 and 17 were the same until I went to mod the bike, and found compatibility issues on a few things.
