Oil change

I noticed quite a few of u changing ur oil
around 800-900 miles, is it because ur driving
it hard or is it just common to change it
that quick the first time??

Probably just because it is a new engine.
I plan on dumping the factory oil for a good synthetic break-in oil within
days of picking mine up. Then following that with a good, normal
synthetic oil a few hundred miles later.
