Carry xtra oil with you
Hey hey, chaps. Just a thought - if your CBR is burning oil, try this - a small Stihl 2-stroke bottle, re-purposed for 10W-40. Keep it in your trunk. I don't burn enough oil to say the bike "burns oil", but compared to my old Honda 929 it certainly does. That bike didn't burn hardly nothing in 5-6k.
I used a little teflon tape around the threads, then sealed the bottle after I capped it w/rubberized electrical tape. Then wrapped it in my dipstick towel. I'm optimistic I won't have to crack it open for a long time. I keep a quart at work, in case I'm asleep at the switch and don't realize I'm low until when I'm 30mi from home. But if I'm ever far, far away and in a pickle, I have it with me. I'm reasonably sure what's in this bottle will bring me from low to OK.
If you don't have a "Tidy Tail", I don't know how much trunk space you have with a CBR1000. Hope this is still relevant.
PS - as much as I like the iPhone work gave me, I hate how the pictures skew 90* for no reason when they appear perfect in other viewing apps. Blackberry's STILL rule.
