View Full Version : R1200R Measured Oil Consumption-

Any feedback would be appreciated. I have been measuring the oil consumption between the miles of 3,385-5,288.
From 3,385-4,210 it consumed aprox 235 ML
From 4,210-5,288 it consumed aprox 210 ML
It sounds pretty normal to me but I thought it would be interesting to discuss.

Sounds pretty normal for an engine that isn't fully broken in. Mine now uses less than 250cc's in 6,000 miles. It continues to drop in useage (now at 24,000 miles.)

At 23,000 miles, my RT still consumes about 1 liter per 6,000 miles - but the engine is smooth, powerful and consistently gets 50 mpg, so I'm not complaining.

My 05 RT used MORE THAN A QUART in 6000 miles at first. After 6000 miles, it started using less and less and finally around 20k miles it uses maybe 1/2 quart in 6000 miles (I have 34k miles now). One thing I notice is that it uses little oil on gentle freeway riding, but I usually beat her with a stick in the twisties and she drinks oil a lot more then. Still, that's high RPMs, hard acceleration, and working hard.
