Thanks for that respectful perspective.With all due respect to the op , I would definately have changed the oil filter especially as it is the first service . Just in case there is any gun lurking around inside the new engine which could block the oil ways.
I would empty the oil again and change that filter and either renew the oil again or put the new drained oil back in , Just for peace of mind . After all the bike cost £20,000 a filter cost what £7 . Me personally I would have let the dealer do the full first service . No disrespect to the OP just what I would do .
Since I did not change filter for reason stated, I disagree. The oil looked brand new, and I doubt there was all kind of gunk in there but the filter just caught it after 550 miles, and now reached it's filtering capacity. In fact, after 5k miles I would think it very important to change based on oil appearance alone! My oil is always black after 5k. So yes changing it initially is best, but in my situation, I would bet anyone that I am not damaging my bike by waiting for 5k. I do love my bike. Thanks for the thoughts.
