go for it, they can only make you pull it down or they will do it themselves.
i believe about 3 years ago some kawa owners got pissed that their frames were cracking and opened a web page about it which gave kawasaki japan the shits. it got closed down once the owners were satisfied by kawasaki.

by the way, kawasaki initial response back then was that the owners were wheeling the bike and landing it hard

Personally, I would like to see them go back to steel liners. Not much chance? Thats what I thought about the silly design making the block a part of the upper crankcase. 08 Honda now once again has a seperate block so crankcase don't have to be split to service the pistons.

Back to the future?

"MickyMouse"asil sucks in my opinion with the only benefit being a couple of punds lighter and prolly cheaper to make for the Japs.

Time to leave 1980: 90% of Japanese/German cars run Nikasil--when done correctly, it last 200-330K miles, just a bad batch. Look at a few motors that are 4-6 race seasons old--99% have beatiful bores thanks to NIkasil, no need for reboring

Country: Australia
Run In: smooth like in the manual
First oil change: Motul 1000 20w50 mineral (dealer told me to put this one first 6000km)
Oil consumption: ~560ml oil / 1000km ->
Oil check method: according the manual provided.

When I completed with oil i measured on the stick to be between the min and max.

I will monitor this and if it continues I will ask dealer about this problem.

I have a 75.000km zx6r and that bike eats 250ml oil / 1000km!!!

Has anybody bothered to find out where the oil is leaking from (internally I mean) into the combustion chamber.
"Its burning oil" just isnt exact enough for me, I wonder if any mechanic has bothered to follow an owner around on a ride or even on a dyno run to see if he can tell weather its blowing smoke on engine brake or under throttle.
Engine brake = valve stems and or stem seals
under throttle = hone pattern or rings or pistons.
Thats the mechanics job, not Honda's

Mine is being tore-down this week; I will share what they find.

The new bike now has 601 miles & hasn't burned any noticeable oil.

I just changed the oil & filter yesterday with dino oil.

Yep, I would get Honda (corporate) involved. This problem seems to manifest itself early on. You may also want to pull your plugs; mine were coated with cooked oil.

The dealer instead took it back for full value and I bought a Harley Davidson 312R from him instead. I love my new Harley (didn't know it was a Harley at that time) 312R. Doesn't burn a drop of oil 1100 miles later. Honda screwed the pooch on this one.

Let it get stole and file and insurance claim is the easiest way of dealing with it.

And my new Harley is even faster than my 081KRR was.

Your Harley's faster !!! Now thats some funny shit!!!!!

He's correct, the "Harley" 312R is a monster.

I'd love to see Harley re-badge all the MVs...
