Actually I got rid of that Harley 312R POS also. Constantly over heated, then the radiator was leaking, then a new rad started leaking. Numerous other problems to sad to mention about a 20K+ bike. Of course it followed the loss of my new 08 1KRR due to oil burning and multiple other problems with it as well.

Word of advice. Buy all your bikes with a credit card, because if they can't fix it, you can eventually force a refund.

I am currently owing 1 bike, a 08 ZX10R and it rides and runs perfect. Bought some BST wheels for it from Brad @ Superbike Supply last week. No longer miss the other bikes.

I went today to the honda dealer that sold me the motorbike and after a few phone calls to honda hq for Australia they decided to fill my bike with "honda genuine oil" + "genuine honda oil filter" and do a 1000km test then measure what's left

I will keep you in touch with this test next week when I will go there

Good luck Baiazid, I know Honda Australia did this for someone else and replaced it for them after doing the 1000km test when it was found to be using oil...

Hopefully they will do the same for you

Ah the old '1000km' test....

Sad to see Honda is failing to step-up to the plate and quickly rectify the situation for those that are having legitimate problems. A compression, leakdown test, and inspection of the plugs will them all they need to know.

I have not ride my bike for 2 days and I wanted to recheck oil.

Something very interesting in oil checking method:

ENGINE COLD + BIKE UP STRAIGHT: Oil level FULL!!! About 90-95% above minimum level

ENGINE WARMED UP 4-5Min to 60C as manual specifies:
-----------------------------------------------------
1 min rest up straight: oil level ZERO!!!
2 min rest up straight: oil level 10% above minimum level
5 min rest up straight (honda manual specifies): 30% above minimum level
6 min rest up straight: 40-45% above minimum level
20 min: 50% above minimum level


ENGINE WARMED UP to 100C after a quick ride:
---------------------------------------------
1 min rest up straight: oil level: 75-80% above minimum level (quite a good value)
5 min rest up straight: oil level: 75-80% above minimum level (quite a good value)


Maybe oil check should be done at higher temperature to allow oil to come back.
