First Sevice, I thought its more than an oil change.

I hit pass 600 miles today, so i went to the dealership for its first service. I went to the dealer because i thought that the first service is critical. If i knew it was just going to be an oil change I couldve done it myself. They didnt even lubricate the chains. Any thoughts? how did your guy's first 600 mile service go? what was included?

LOL sucks champ i was planning on taking mine to the dealership until i researched what they do at the 600 mile service, and quickly learned that the "stealership" just takes your money....

But... i have heard that they are suppose to check bolts (loosens due to vibration), check valves (might need adjusting), lube chain, change oil and oil filter, tire pressure and top and check fluids..
