Re: 2008 CBR1000RR is burning oil like mad - options?
Do you have Lemon Law in your state? You need to start logging all the trips to the dealer and keep your receipts. You might be able to take Honda to abitration and get a replacement bike (or even your money back).
I sucessfully did this with my POS 2000 Corvette Coupe when I lived in Michigan. Due to an admitted faulty PCV system in the LS1, in 11 months, the car used 13 quarts of oil ---- amongst other issues such as inconsistent paint, poor panel gaps, broken stitching on the seat, a leaking hatch, cracked radio buttons and electrical issues. Not slagging off American product, but this particular 'vette was a real POS.
Through a good attorney who specialises in Lemon Law, I was able to get back my money and return the car....all at no cost to me (GM paid the attorney costs).
