Let's see......I think you already KNOW the answer to the oil change question. Go by the book.
And if you have multiple dealers fairly close, call for prices before you go anywhere for scheduled maintenance.
Some shops really ARE "stealers"......but not all of them.
I think a fair price is something around $150 unless you are near a place where EVERYTHING costs a fortune.
The automatic transmission is "clunky" only when it is cold OR if you try to treat it like a manual.
It is the same basic design as most all bike transmissions and they all clunk because of the design.
They shift best if:
You let the computer decide when to shift when slowing down. Close the throttle and enjoy.
When going UP, they shift best at "neutral throttle". That is, do NOT do anything with the throttle when shifting.
Let it rev up to the point where it stops pulling hard and then shift. Do NOT let off the throttle......in most cases.
The average MPG probably needs to be reset. Check your manual or ask the dealer.
