change the filter with the first oil change (all my manuals have always said to do so too). I don't want all the metal particulates that wear off of new engine parts and are in the break in oil floating around until the next oil change.
I don't think the FX850 manual I had mentioned doing filter on first 5hr change. Not saying yours doesn't, just saying that they must give out different manuals
I was of the opinion that if the manu didn't mention it needed it, then Id go along with that. However I tend to agree with you, its a cheap thing to change over, so Ill pick one up next opportunity and change him over
