Heavy oil consumption, what are the options?
I bought a 2008 KLR about mid July. I have added 3,200 miles to the 6,787 that were on the bike when I bought it. I love this bike, BUT
It uses a quart of oil about every 800 miles. This seems extremely excessive, and I'm surprised I haven't fouled the plug.
Most of what I have read suggests a 685 kit, but one poster said he had his '08 re-ringed with '09 rings, and this solved his problem.
Now that I have 10,000 miles on the bike, simply re-ringing might not be an option?
Any and all ideas appreciated.
