I have noticed that the service item intervals in my clymer manual differ from the owners manual so which is correct.
for example clymer says change oil & filter @ 4000 miles & every 8000 miles after that & the owners manual says 600 miles then 8000 miles & every 8000 miles.

I wonder if the European bikes have a different manual. My Honda owners manual for my '05 calls for initial service at 4,000 and then 8,000 thereafter.
My dealer called for service at 600 then 4,000 and then at every 4,000. I changed at 500 and then every 5,000. Do what makes you feel good. The gl1800 engine really does not care and some change at 12,000 or so if they are using syn oil.

My "OH TWO" calls for first service at 4,000 miles and every 4,000 miles there after; but oil changes are fall on multiples of 8,000 after the initial change at 4,000. Other services are staggered too. One of teh ones that strikes me as very peculiar is that inspections of the air box and sub plumbing for secondary air supply fall out of sync with air filter changes -- DUHHHHHHH! Sure, lets spend all day tearing it aapart to see why its working OK.

The 600 mile interval; I don't recall that one for the GL1800 -- then again I may not recall a lot of things -- maybe better off forgetting! :wink:

That's what the dealer said on my 07 ...
I thought that was a pretty long interval for a new motor.
... so I read my manual and it says something like 4,000 miles
... OR 1 month
... that makes a lot more sense to me.

All the bikes from 01 through 05 designate the first oil change at 4000 then every 8000 miles thereafter. If you think your manual says every 4000 miles then carefully re-read it.
