I personally change at 3000 with a new engine then 5000 miles after that but that's just my preference. I think the manual says 7500.

I did my first one at 2500 with MC 5W20. Just did the 2nd at 7500 last weekend with M-1 5W20 EP.

Change it early if you want, no harm done. I'm going to go the full 7500 from now on.
