Re: 2008 CBR1000RR is burning oil like mad - options?
If I am to believe my dealer then YES mine has had silkolene fully synth in from day one. I do not understand why and if they feel its ok and they are prepared to cover the warranty then who am I to argue. I may just switch to Castrol after this investigation is finished.
I have about 200 miles (which I am hoping to do today) left to ride before I take it back to them for them to measure whats going on. I am hoping that it was just newness as to the reason why it burnt so much oil in one day and now the bike has 1700 miles on it maybe it has bedded in better ???? who knows.
more as I find out
UPDATE: I spoke to one of the mechies at my dealership and he told me out the factory the bike came with mineral oil, at the 600 mile service it was replaced with fully synth, I wish service and sales people would get their **** together.
