Oil burn after doohickey?
For first 3000 miles, my 2009 KLR never showed less than full on the sight glass. Alway full. Always.
Then I replaced the doohickey and spring, and now I have had to add 1/2 pint every 200 miles since then.
Cooincidence? Did I screw up the doohickey install? Something else amiss?
I don't mind adding a bit of oil now and then, but the suddeness of the onslaught of oil burning has me curious. I operate the bike no differently than before, except that now, I have to add oil after every ride. Not a big deal. Oil is fairly cheap, and as long as it gets no worse, I'll be fine. And if it gets worse, I suppose I can put the OEM doo back in place, to see if that stops the burn. Then if not, I can do the 685 cylinder.
