As has been said above, the dealer is either misinformed or lying. It is illegal to try to condition the consumer warranty on having the dealer perform the service.
I wouldn’t use your dealer if I was stranded on the side of the road.

Contact Us and ask them what you just asked the dealer. Let American Honda answer first, and see how it compares with the dealer’s answer. Then tell them how this dealer has been attempting to use warranty coverage eligibility to entice you to do business with them. It would be interesting to see how they respond. Save a transcript of the conversation.
You have or can develop the skills needed to keep this motorcycle maintained. Try to make yourself independent of dealer service. You will save money and your life with the bike will become easier.
I’m supposed to respect my elders, but it’s getting harder and harder for me to find one now ..
+1 on DIY, and keep records. Pictures are good.
24h is excessive but I like to wait 8h. Maybe it's overkill but I'd rather know it's right.
And as other people stated, I'd stay away from that dealer.

600 miles is both filters plus oil.
So, so, easy - you can do yourself.
I bought everything from the dealer and kept the invoice in case there is ever an issue later on.
I wanted to see my old oil.
However unless you got extended warranty - its 1 year. So unlikely a 2nd old change while warranted.
Careful not to over-tighten the clutch filter cover. Just hand tight.
... oops - 2 filters if DCT, and only clutch oil filter cover if DCT.
