The service manual says 1st oil & filter change @ 600 miles (on 2001 model). If you don't want to wait that long, I'd say 300 miles at the soonest.

My first oil change was at 25 miles this is because with a new engine there is bits of metal from gears and other engine components that get grinded off with the initial start/ride. Just to see how much metal was in the oil I filtered the oil in the catch pan through a paper towel and I was amazed by the amount of metal, I should have taken a picture of it. Then at 600 miles I changed the oil & filter again. Then at 1300 miles I changed to synthetic oil Mobil1 15w50.
