I have seen any number of posts in different places that suggest that Honda has put in special detergents and other additives in the break-in oil. Changing it before the suggested date thereby dumps these additives as well.

Do you see metal shavings when you pass a magnet over the oil from the first oil change? I would be quite surprised to see anything much that was readily visible.
