A friend of mine had his 08 replaced by Honda Australia for oil burning issues.

There is no Jardine love here

When I picked up my bike from them I showed them the same black burned oil on the exhaust. Their answer: THAT IS NORMAL


Then they told me the oil loss was from a broken O-ring from oil filter.
I told them something like: so 600ml of oil in 1000km leaking on the hot engine without fumes or smell?

PATETIC!!!

But maybe with ppl who don't know a little bit mechanics ... this commercial bullshit is working.

After 1000km they measured the oil. Conclusion 1lit / 1000km.

They will change the piston rings with new version of them (honda released new piston rings for this model).

This is encouraging, but not in alignment with what the DSM told me recently.

He's right. They have different rings. Funny thing I hear is they didn't incorporate them into the 09's. What's even funnier is how as of right now Honda is still saying that there is not a problem. This was known from the beginning, it was even posted before how if you put Pistal pistons in with their own rings magically the bikes wouldn't consume oil. Wonder what's going to happen with all the other problems that are surfacing now. Amazing how people think that because they got 5k miles on the bike and nothing has happened they got "one of the good ones".

+1..the dealer had my bike..now they tell me to ride it for 500 miles.. well that would mean most likely that id be 2 qt's low by 500 or even more..i mean i was burning 1/4 of a qt. on a little ride like 40-80 miles..this thing was smoking on dececelration on my way home.. the guy even marked the oil filler cap and stated not to check or add oil and to touch nothing... i am not amused right now b/c its below 40 degrees where im at and they want 500 miles ridden then bring back to shop. I cant wait to bring it back and hear what they say.. like oil burning is normal crap.. yeah right.. im so pissed, got the paint job, and got DOVIZIOSO to sign gas tank at indy and got that clear coated.... but wonder what theyre gonna conclude with my problem???its normal to burn oil.. just keep adding.....its a race engine its gonna burn some oil....youll be alright they all do that...im so pissed!!!!
