The manual says to change the differential gear oil at 200 miles

Is this really necessary? I know the manual says to change it at the first 200 miles or 20 hours. Is this overly cautious or should I do it? I know to change the oil at 200 miles/20 hours, but the differential oil?

I would change everything, just to be safe. There could have been casting or machining pieces left over that are now floating around from breaking off during the break in, i wouldn't want those floating around for long. Oil is cheap, other fixes arent. So if in doubt, change it i say, cant hurt anything.

Definitly change all your oils and I highly recommend Amsoil. They offer a gear lube that continues to protect even with up to 10% water added. They also offer good 4 stroke small engine oils. Amsoil is a little more expensive than average oil but well worth it.

At the first dealer service all fluids should be changed. At least all of mine were changed.

This is just my opinion, but just know everyone has one. lol I think the 1st service is the most critical....go ahead and change it. Breaking in produces alot of heat and possibly some metal shavings, both are bad if left in there. After the 1st, maybe you can stretch it some on the dif oil, if you run something good in it.

I run Valvoline dura-lube in mine.
