yeah thats the best idea. They say most metal particles will come off within the first 75 miles. So I would do one at 75-100 then at 600. Both of those go with 10w40 NON synthetic regardless of climate or weather. After about 600-1000miles its a good idea to clean out the oil pan and strainer because those little metal bits tend to get magnetized and like to stick to the wall of the oil pan or something else metal. But 2 oil changes by 600 miles helps a lot. After at least 1800 miles on the engine you can switch to semi-synthitic. I would never go full synthetic though. It costs an arm and a leg, the clutch likes to slip with full, and all you might gain is what a half a second in a race?? not worth it for street use.
Just a thought, but you might want to make sure that when it comes to getting oil changes for this baby, you need to call ahead and make sure that you can get a filter. Supposedly, from two different Kawi dealerships, they neither one had a filter in for it, because the bike has a new size filter that no other bike uses. Might want to call ahead and have it before you do any serious riding. Just a thought.
