I am a new owner of a 2007 Vtx 1300c. I am in love with the looks and the ride of the bike. I have about 1300 miles on it now. Is it neccesary to do the 600 mile service, or can I just change the oil or little stuff? The dealership wants to charge me 350$ and I haven't had it a month yet. Any advice would greatly be appreciated... Thanks in advance for your timley response....

At 1300 miles I highly recommend servicing. Oil, filter, and definitely get the valves checked!! This is a big part of the 600 mi service. The 350 sounds high, get pricing from other dealers, or even bike shops in general, the work doesn't have to be done by Honda, just keep records of all work done. Or save money and do it yourself, there are threads here that will take you through the valve check step by step w/photos. BTW- welcome to the cafe and congrats on the new ride!!
