3800 mile oil change: Doing it myself.

Thanks to "theknurl" I know exactly what filter to get!! My question is, god forbid anything happened to the engine after I performed the oil change myself, would that be grounds for MV to nullify the factory warranty?

Over here, if you missed the recommended warranty period service, you could find yourself in a spot of bother.

Magnuson_Moss warranty act restricts manuf. from having specific stipulations to maintain a warranty in effect.

"You do not require consumers to perform any duty as a precondition for receiving service, except notifying you that service is needed, unless you can demonstrate that the duty is reasonable."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnuso...s_Warranty_Act

It's a good idea to keep the receipt for your oil and filter tho this has never come up for me. Additionally, the manuf. has the burden of proving that something you did to the bike caused the warranty claim.

The same idiocy that has been going on here since I arrived in 1988.
