My R1100RT used oil when I got it a 18k. At about 20k or so, I got tired of
putting oil in it. I just assumed that it was not yet broken in, so I
flogged the doodoo out of it for about 2k miles. I mean intentionally beat
the motor with throttle and revs nearly constantly, but I did not exceed
redline or lug the motor, or overheat etc. This brought my oil consumption
down to nil. I did the flogging on dino oil then somewhere around 25k
switched to Redline Oil.
Hope this helps.
