Bought my son an 08 back in May, drove it home from the dealer and the 1st thing we did was drain the oil and change the filter with Rotella 10W-40 diesel mineral oil. Bike will run all day at 75 mph with no oil consumption. Bike now has 9K on it and it takes 4 oz to top it off between oil changes....what oil consumption problem? The oil is the problem not the engine, its too slick and blows by the rings.
