    Default First oil change

    So I got 4 quarts of Mobil 1 4T and a K&N filter and performed my first oil change, but I'm concerned because you're supposed to change it at 600 miles and I let it go to 606+
    Did I screw up my engine?
    Lol I'm kidding.....Game on!

    You didn’t use all 4 quarts did you? If you did, you will most likely be replacing your left air filter next. Over filling the Oil is the number one cause of oil puke.

    No it was actually about 3.75 using methods of checking learned here :)

    Never has been for me, my bike must be special. I've been putting in a full four quarts for 13 years. Only puked once after the dealer did the 600 mile, and it still had stock airboxes. You get rid of the high vacuum stock filters, which suck the oil out of the engine due to the placement of the oil breather hose behind the filter, puke stops. Even FuturR agrees with this.

    6 extra miles

    I'd say you will have to do a complete rebuild, get Matt to do some upgraded cams etc while it's apart

    Damn it, if only I had paid more attention. Now I will probably have to get new 12.5:1 pistons to go with those cams too
