Oil consumption '07 10r - August 22, 2008, 11:31 AM

I put a little over 2k on the clock since my last oil change. I noticed this morning (while my bike was on stands) that the level of black gold was down to the bottom mark on the sight glass. I am certain that I filled it to the 1/2 way mark at the change. And yes, I topped it off to that level after running her to fill the filter.
Any others with this motor have the same thing! It equated to about 1/8 of a quart to get it back up. It isn't much, but I am one of THOSE people. Thanks!

It will read low if you have it on the rear stand.
It is to be checked with both wheels on the ground and the bike vertical.

It was on both front and rear stands. However, I was thinking that it may be because I changed the oil in June, when it was 100 degrees that week. When I looked at it this AM, it was around 55-58. Maybe thermal expansion? I don't know about that much difference. I will keep checking....

1/8 of 1 quart after 2000 miles? Thats nothing to worry about. Why didn't you fiull it to the top line? Does the manual say not too? Just curious? Mine says fill it to the top line. After 50000 miles it burns a 1/2 quart between changes.

Well you see, Norm, itís like thisÖA herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Now, as we know, excessive intake of alcohol kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. And that, Norm, is why you always feel smarter after a few beers.-Cliff Claven

LOL! I said so!!
Btw, I wasn't really worried over this. More of a curiosity. I know consumption does occour, but I haven't had a sight glass in a long time. Aprilia's (Rotax) has a tube on the oil tank that is 4' long and it was always fluctuated.
Nothing in the manual says anything but to keep it in the marks. I stopped at 1/2 because that was all I had

No problems on mine @ 5.5k.... did you break it in properly? I know my front stand seems to be a bit lower than my rear.... simple to recheck level on flat surface (i.e. no stands).
