It also burned about a quart of oil/track weekend. No more Hondas for me...
you still have the 08? did you get a compression/leakdown done on it? 400 rpms isnt a lot but it can/will cause issues. you can go all the way up to 15k with springs, but the crank dont like anymore over 14.5k.

I sold the 08 to a salvage delaer in FL for about half what it would sell for had the engine been OK, definitely pisses me off.

It began getting hard to start very slowly over the past season eventually getting to the point where it wouldn't start at all unless stone cold (oil is thicker helping the rings seal). I spent countless hours swapping and buying parts trying to fix the starting issue until I finally checked compression; 70-90psi on a warmed up engine. It had less than 15k miles, about 2-3k were track.

I had an 07 R6 with 34k miles on it when sold and it beat mercilessly for 3 years, never burned any oil and it ran fine the day I sold it. I've always felt Honda was a cut above the rest but no more, I'm done...

Bidwell;
Did you ever check valve clearances?

Tight valves will make a bike damn near impossible to start while hot but will start when cold. You'd also lose compression and a whole miriad of problems.

^ then why dose hot oil feel thiner than cold. For instance oil from a hot motor drains faster than that from a cold motor. And cold straight is thicker that hot. First had experience when I tried to fill the front pumpkin on my blazer when it was 20 something outside. Put the oil inside for a night flowed right in.....

Viscosity modifiers thicken the multi oil as it's heated.
