Okay my friend let me tell you something.
I bought my 2008 Honda Cbr1000RR in 2011 and i didnt know anything about the oil problem, clutch problem,crankcase problem,the 08 has more problem than just oil burning.
Check if the recals for clutch were done and there was a recal for hose clamp.
On the steering colum, just on the side where is the ignition,there is the vin number and there are supposed to be punchmarks for done recals, did you check that?
I love my bike, i love the power, i love the looks and i love the sound.
Mine burns half liter on 3000 miles (4500 km).
Not that all other bikes are better than the honda,but honda really fucked up on the 2008 model.
Guys here that got 2011 and 2012 are really happy, 98 % doesnt burn oil and lots of power and no problems.
It used to be like that with the 2007 model.no problems at all and no burning oil.
If you are planning to put 5000 km in a year on that bike, i would say go and get the honda, if you are planning to put 25 000 km, get the kawasaki.
You are saying it burns very very little for now, maybe will stay that way,maybe not,but you should follow your heart. And if you love the honda more than the kawasaki, and you get the kawasaki, you wont be happy, so go ahead and get the honda because since your first thread, you mind was set up for honda.
Plus you are asking opinion on a honda forum, what opinion you gonna get?
