Mine is Vin 000325 and have no problems out of it. Just incase people are not doing the check right this is what the book says,
1. Park your motorcycle on it side stand on a firm, level surface.
2. Start the engine and let it idle for 3-5 minutes. Make sure the warning indicator and low oil pressure indicator go off. If the indicators remians on, stop the engine immediately.
3. Stop the engine and wait 2-3 minutes.
4. Remove the dipstick and wipe it clean.
5. Hold the motorcycle in an upright position.
6. Insert dipstick until it seats, but don't screw it in.
7. Remove the dipstick and check the oil level.

I wonder if people are not doing 5. If I leave mine leaned over then it shows almost empty. When I stand it up it is on the line.

Haha, I know. I used to be on 600rr.net alot along time ago before it went to cr@p. Did a couple of 600/1000rr.net trackdays too. I still come here occasionally, but mostly just browsing...

I havent had the issue with mine but read with great interest...throwing this out there....Ive noticed that most people with the problem seem to be running BMC Race filters. Stretch but maybe its a race filter NOT a street filter for a reason!? I run the street BMC filter.

Also, another unknown factor is break in. How many guys really followed the 600 mile, under 6K rpm? I did, and no oil consumption here. I then switched to Honda full synthetic. What role does that play?

There are too many factors involved to accurately pin-point this one. Let Honda figure it out.

2008 Blk / Silver 1000rr Yoshi Carbon Full System, DynoJet USBIII, Ignition Module, Quickshifter, BMC Filter and some Hotbodies action!

Hard break in, synthetic oil since 100km, 2 track days, 3 sets of tires, 6,000km, and 4 oil/filter changes later, not even a ml of burned oil, nor any reports from rides behind me (track and road)

BTW. I'm in Oz, we get the euro models (if it makes any diff), mine run like a dream, yet others down here have oil consumption issues. Another main complain down here is gearboxes... mine is fine.

I have got a new bike. We nearly got to court, but laws here look out for such flaws.

Only done around 600km on the new bike, too early to tell if anything is wrong with it, but the gearbox is deffinatly much much better.

08 1k. One horny motorcycle.

Congratulations.

I'm on #2 as well, and am noticing consumption, but so far, not on the level as the previous unit. Is your new unit consuming oil?

Hi,

1. the last 6 of your vin# : ??? will complete later
2. what symptoms you've seen : some blackening of the exhaust, 500ml in 1000k
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 : dealer marked up oil cap and dipstick and measured oil usage after 1000k. Honda australia has reccomended they replace pistons, rings and barrels. I said the bike is smoking heavily on deceleration - usually pointing to a problem in the top end of an engine...
6.Sydney Australia

I was kinda hopnig for a new bike, what do you guys think>? let them replace the pistons ect and if it still uses oil demand a new bike?

I believe AU law is on your side .. get a new bike, not the reconditioned one.

It seems odd they would authorize this work with only 500ml per 1k km. Did they perform a leak-down/compression/plug reading? How many miles on the bike? Does it make decent power?
