Just curious. I never check my oil between 5,000+ mile changes. Am I normal? LOL!! I watch for oil consumption the first few thousand miles, but after that I know to trust it.
As someone who's bike is sitting in a trailer (with about 8" of fresh snow on top) I'm sure there must be a reason for this? j/k...in the enclosed trailer for it's 100 mile trip to Marble Falls.
If it isn't down to the lower line on the dipstick, then there is no reason to add oil. If it doesn't make it to the lower line betwen changes, then I wouldn't worry at all. Every engine uses some oil.... some just use more than others.Sir Rog said:I checked after a 1,000 mile trip last summer, and it was down app. 5 ounces but I had a total of 6000 miles, since the last oil change. Is this considered normal or do any of you think I may have a problem here ????? :?
