In the book 18K,36K and 54K miles. So every 3rd service.

Thanks I suppose itís a bit early for anyone to have had it done.  It would be interesting to know how they do it? Take the caps off and suck it out or forks out purge and fill. The latter wold be costly as in time consuming.
There could be a drain screw on the side or up under the axle.
