Q's for you oil consuming KLR's
What is the official acceptable level of oil drinking ?
I know i hear over and over how after 09 they changed pistons and rings wich solved the issue ..but now my bike a '12 with 7500 miles has started drinking oil like i do beer ..
My buddy and i just tried to do the 1000 mile/24 hour IBA last week both on Klr 's mine the '12 his a '11 both with almost same miles his has 8k ..
by 700 mile mark my buddy had used almost 3/4 quart i had used almost 1/2 quart with a GPS average of 60 mph . running casrol synthetic 10w-40 bike oil ..
For a bike i bought new in July this seems wrong .. Not even my harley drank oil like this .
Im a bike tech and cant get a straight answer or same answer from anyone ..
