Where are you from? Please make sure when you check your oil the bike is completely level for future referance. thanks for the post.
northern N.J... and yeah i added 8oz. last nite to top off. will cheack it again in a few minutes for the level, im going on a nice run. and i do have a lot of black around the exhaust tip just like someone else on here stated....will update tonight...
ok.. checked it after a 350 miles run(hard).changed the oil(semi syn 10w40) at 2400 miles and after 2 long riding days im at 3400miles +. there was no oil loss.. but my friend kept saying he saw smoke when i was accelerating..so now im worried. dont know if thats normal? running rich.. does anyone elses exhaust do this? and does anyone have that black around the exhaust tip?? i never had a stock exhaust w/ so much black on the tip..i heard on here that hondas run rich..is this true..WTF????
ps. how many quarts of oil does the 08 take?? someone said 3.2 quarts???does anyone know an exact #? and what theyre putting in exactly... thanks..
thats sportrider review where the 08 was puffing smoke is in the back of my mind..ffaaacckk!!!!
With the type of riding that i do, yes i do think its acceptable. The bike has nearly 800 track miles on it. These big motor bikes are sure to use a bit of oil. I've never owned a car that didnt use a bit of oil as well. Even my 600RR used a bit.
