      q: did you run it in like a man or a mouse?

      for the record, my 600rr does not use a scrap of oil, after 30,000km... maybe you just got a dud? (yes, different bike, bit redesigned around about the same time-frame with similar design ideas).

You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa

          A Honda that burns oil? Yep, you've got a problem there. How much are we talking? How are you filling after a change? Not to imply you are retarded...... but things like resting on the side stand, how long the bike has been off, hot/cold, running level?

          Are you sure it's burning oil?

            Have a check on the forums - fireblade etc

            Those motors have to be run in properly ie not in suburbia - I dont know what Honda is going to do about that, or what the actual problem is

                Sounds like it wasn't run-in properly, and oil is getting past your rings.

                  no no i ran it in to the letter as told by the sales man. and in about 500km she used close too 2 ltrs. but now it is booked in under warenty to check this problem out. but since the 6000km service (now on 11811km) i have had to add a total of about 4.5ltrs were the oil res in the book says max capacity is 2.4 ltr or sumthing

                          That much oil use would cause clouds of smoke out the back of the bike.

                          Sure you arent overfilling it?

                              There is no way that would be a running in problem. Even if you ran a bike in completely contrary to instructions it would not burn so much oil. It sounds like your engine is basically blown.

                              The good thing is if it's under warranty it will get sorted out.

                              My 16yo fireblade with 37,000km burns no oil, neither should a brand new one.
