Re: oil consumption

Data point :  they give you that oil consumption as a maximum so they don't have to spend a lot rebuilding engines.  A quart of oil in 1000KM is normal if you are on the otherside of the warranty desk.  I just did 1100 miles on my GS with only 7,000 miles and it took less than 2 oz to get it back to the dot, Gee I hope this oil comsumption goes down.......

Data point: my '99 R1100RT wanted half a liter after 5000km to get the
level back at the dot.
