I think mine burns oil too......

I use motul 300V Factory Line 10/40 (they put it in on my first service check)

Maybe to use another oil brand?

sorry if this question is already answered here
Well, Honda gave me a new bike.

Other are having similar problems, but I have only heard of one other having the same outcome.

Just to be factual, that would not be full. Actual full would be running the engine for 3-5 minutes, stopping the engine, waiting 2-3 minutes, and if the dipstick is reading at the upper mark it is full.

I know. Just reading the dipstick level.

I think the wait time depends the thickness of oil.

Honda Australia filled up my bike with 20w50 Motul 1000 (Mineral 100%).

They said to use only mineral until ~10000km then switch to synthetic.

Yes but can you prove your statement?

Its quite controversial but no one can actually say for sure either way. Synthetic is more 'slippery' and for seating the rings I would prefer dino. While that is only two hundred miles or so. I like the idea of the metals having a little extra friction if you will from using dino oil while breaking the bike in.

Please keep us posted.
Yea I called BS on that months ago and got a snappy response that it was

Lol: 0.05% (more chances to win the lottery)

Ontopic: My bike is at Action MC Sydney (Parramatta) and tomorrow I will pick it up with new oil. Rdy for test.

I will check the new oil level to be sure... and after that 1000k to test

Good luck, keep us posted and ride hard!

Btw, Honda Australia should publicly acknowledge this, admit and rectify the problem.
At present, people are scared to buy '08 .. I would be too.
