Have you ever dropped it on uneven ground , Makes a big difference.

Never seen much oil come out of their with the engine off.
Take off the valve cover and lay it on it's side

Do you know those folks? and know the story?
The rider dropped it on Cleman Mt. By the time it was righted and repaired, it needed oil.

I wonder if they didnt realize it was holed, and continued to ride?
That's another possibility.

have you ever adjusted your valves? How much oil comes out when you remove the valve cover?
Maybe next time try adjusting them with the engine off.
