My 98 has a voracious appetite for oil, to the tune of a half quart or more every thousand miles or so.

So, I guess that's "normal", at least for MY bike.

cihm, My '97 has about 36K miles, uses no oil at all between 6K inspections and doesn't puff smoke when parked and started on the side stand.

I've always used mineral oils until recently when I went to semi-synthetic. Still no change in oil consumption. Bike uses much more gas than oil!

K's are big motors with more power than some riders may use. They need to be worked hard sometimes. Usually you can tell on a rip down if a bike's been maltreated with kindness: hone marks are still in the bores and the rings are clogged with carbon. I read on the old forum that these motors are only considered broken in after 50K miles!

If all I ever have to do on a bike is put gas and oil in it with no other problems, I'm a happy bunny. Don't worry.
