    oil consumption 1998 k1200rs

    Well I just returned from Salem (another good time ) and I'm looking for input. I have a 1998 k1200rs (purchased new ) with 95,000 miles. It used about 3/4 of a quart after a 1000 mile day of running hard. I have not taken a compression test yet ( that's why god created winters in Minnesota ) but was thinking of replacing the rings and valve seals. Parts are not cheap and I hate to get into it to the point of no return, I should mention that I use regular petroleum oil, tried synthetic which led to other problems. Has anyone done this and was it successful ? Not sure if I should entertain this idea or start looking for a new ride. Looking forward to hearing your comment and opinion.
