Oil consumption?

I've only lost oil on highspeed rides. On a 400 mile off road ride, consisting of mostly 5 gear, 3/4-full throttling riding, my oil will be nearly at the bottom of the dip stick.

On single track rides or rides when I'm rairly at sustained full throttle, I dont' seem to loose any oil.

My bike goes through about a quart in 15-20 hours. I change my oil at around 30 hours. I keep a pretty close eye on it but sometimes it will catch me out after a long high speed run. If your bike is using oil I'd recommend putting on a sight tube. It won't stop the bike using oil but it makes it much easier to keep on top of the consumption. I can tell if the oil level is in the right area even tooling down the road on the bike with just a glance.

Good advice, Alan. I'm not used to a dipstick on a bike and checking oil hot. I forget to check it constantly. I'm putting a sight tube on this thing.

I guess I have changed the oil more then I thought, maybe every 1,500-2,000 miles...either way I have never been low when checking. I have about 5,800 miles on the bike since I got the old 2001 gal in late fall of 2009 I would say that is 98% dirt miles, from dirt roads, to jeep trails, to ATV trails and one single track thus far.

Mickoz, your bike looks new! Very nice. What exhaust tip is that?

No skid plate? Looks very clean otherwise.

This will be my first tire change EVER. My buddies are begging me to take it to a shop. I've done everything else to the bike so far so how hard could it be, right?

Changed them both first try and nailed it.

The only bad news is that when I removed the little nuts on the front axle holder one of the studs broke off. I was not expecting that...I was barely turning it!

Anyway, I looked up the parts diagram and it appears that those are studs that are able to be changed and are not cast into the forks. Has anybody ever changed one of those before? What's the general consensus here regarding the bike being safe to ride until I get the parts in with only three of the four nuts tightened down?

It sucks...break something trying to fix something...at least I got my new tires on.

A friend of mine recently bought a 2001 650R, while reinstalling the front wheel, he broke a stud. They certainly are replaceable(might as well replace all 4). I wouldn't recommend taking it off road until you replace the stud, would be too much of a risk to me... hope this helps
