Default Initial oil change...500 miles?

Do all the Victory 106ci models call for an initial oil change at 500 miles? My Hammer does, but I met a fellow in a parking lot riding a new 2016 Cross Country. We talked for a few minutes and he mentioned that he was close to 1,000 miles. I asked him how his oil looked when it was changed and his reply was that he hadn't changed it yet, that his manual called for the first oil change to be done at 1,500 miles. Was he wrong?

Per the 2015 XC Owners manual.

Break-In Maintenance
Have your VICTORY dealer perform the break-in maintenance procedures when the motorcycle’s odometer registers 500 miles (800 km). Performing the break-in maintenance will help ensure optimum engine performance for the entire service life of the engine. Your dealer will change engine oil, inspect all fluids and serviceable components, ensure that all fasteners are tightened and make other adjustments as needed.

Add to this GOOD info of Bbob

If you don't ride that much, please change your engine oil every 12 months, moister gets in the oil so does the gears, etc..... It is cheap insurance

A buddy of mine just bought a 2009 DYNA HD ( for 20k USD ) and he asked my opinion, so the tires, brake fluid, are from 2009, the engine oils are from 2016.....

I adviced him to change the
1. Tires
2. All 3 engine oils
3. Brake fluid

And ride that sucker

If that's a Dyna it's very highly modified. Looks more like a Softail to me with a different swingarm. Whatever it is; it's a really nice looking custom bike.

Yes! That's what I was thinking it was; a Deuce. The dash plate was the givaway. The Deuce was a Softail and they didn't make them very long but it was quite popular. I remember wanting one really bad when they first came out.

Get the 500 mile service for a number of reasons and keeping the warranty in effect is one. Re-torquing is another. If you bought right, you got that included with the purchase of the bike.
Fuggedabout what owners of other brands tell you about maintenance. After all, they didn't have the smarts to buy a Victory.

I guess my thread was confusing. I wasn't unsure of what my owners manual says, since I've read it, and it calls for an initial change at 500 miles. What I'm asking is are there any Victory models that cites a different mileage for the initial change. That's all. I was just curious since the fellow I talked with seemed very adamant that his owners manual said differently.

And by the way, doing your own oil change does NOT invalidate the warranty. I wish that myth would go away.

I seriously doubt there are any Victory's that recommend a different break in oil change than the 500 mile one. I just looked up the 2016 XC Owners manual and it said exactly what the 2015 said and the 2011 and on and on. All the same. You can look it up yourself. It's under "Maintenance".
