1- really...is this necessary? but its in the 700's...
2- inside exhaust is black...smoking indicated from riders behind me
3- start engine for 20sec...shut off...wait 2 min...stand bike up...check dipstick W/O screwing in
4- bazzaz z-fi, yosh full-system, flapper, pair,
5- oc honda...taking care of me and waiting for honda to approve work to be done

power's been great...i'm putting over 12hp from stock in peak and have a good 10-15hp gain across the entire rpm range. started losing oil at about 3800miles...added one quart and a half at 4300 and then another quart at 4800. no bueno...

yeah.. weird.. mines was burning like half a qt. after each ride. depending on mileage, usually between 65-100 miles and 1/2 qt. low.. also power seems less.. and 3rd to 4th gear keeps getting a false neutral,, this was from the first few miles.. adjusted foot and hand controls but it still does it.. i believe that i got one of the few problematic ones.. its in the dealer and im awaiting their response....

I think oil burning issues are just somewhat common with Honda's-although not all of them. I had 3 2003 cbr 600rr's. They all burned a (scary to me) amount of oil. The worst one would use a quart during a trackday and 1.5 quarts every 3000 miles. People always commented on smoke during decelation and heavy acceleration. Always ran strong though.

Since then I've had:
2003 r6
2 2006 r6's
1 2005 zx6r
1 2006 749

AND NOT ONE OF THESE BURN A DROP OF OIL!

I think it's sorta normal, but I wouldn't have it again.

Hi,

1. the last 6 of your vin# : 000125
2. what symptoms you've seen : some blackening of the exhaust, 4 liters in 12k km
3. How you check your oil : bike on level, dip screwed in
4. mods on bike : none
5. what dealer interaction you've had on this issue : oil consumption below 1L per 1000 km is not an issue...told me there is always some oil burning and mine was quite standard, I enquired what model he owned...he told me he had a civic...I understood then I was going nowhere with this guy (btw largest Honda Dealer in France)
6. Paris, France

BTW no more oil burning since I hit the 12k km servicing in september....cause the bike was nicked ! had it for 5 months Oo

Does anyone read directions? Let me make sure that I am........does the book not say start the engine and run 1 to 2 minutes. Turn engine off.....let stand 1 to 2 mins. Remove oil check stick, and wipe clean. Insert, and DO NOT screw in. Remove and check oil level. All this on level ground.

I am going from memory, but is this correct or not? If it is, then why do people keep checking the oil with the stick screwed in?

I was always told this: Honda's will burn the most oil, evaporate the most anti-freeze, and get shitty gas mileage.......BUT they will be the most reliable, and long lasting bike you will ever own. I hope just the latter is true.
