    Just wondering what the "average" is.

    Mine was (i can only assume) filled at the first service at 640 miles.

    It is now on 1450 miles (scary - 3 weeks riding!)

    I had to fill from just over minimum to max, which was approx 350 ml of oil.

    I dont think this is too bad at all really - makes about a litre in 2500 miles.

    is it likely to start using less now??? or more? now its looser.
  2. It should start using less now than in its first 1000 miles.
  3. mine was the same early on i got the bike with less then 1k on and i used a load of oil the next couple of hundred miles and i put a post up and i was told not to worry but keep an eye on it, sure enough it has settled down and i have only put 100-200ml in the last 1500 miles
