Scheduled maintenance

Touring Models - Harley Davidson Forums - www.hdforums.com
I recently bought a 2011 Ultra Limited. I took it to the dealer for its 1000 mile service last week. I asked when the next service was and they told me at 2500 miles, then 5000, then 7500, then 10,000.

I picked up the 2011 Touring service manual yesterday because I plan to do my own service, and the scheduled maintenance chart shows the first service is at 1000 miles, then at 5000 miles, then every 5000 after that.

Now I tend to want to believe what is printed in the "official" HD service manual, and I can't help but wonder if the dealer is trying to gouge customers by getting them to pay for twice the amount of oil changes?

Changing oil at 2500 miles seems excessive to me, especially if using synthetic oils.

What should I go by - what's printed in the book or what the dealer told me?
