Cheers Splatty, haven't been on for a while. You still running the Scorpion, any other mods? I ditched the Yoshi and picked up a new 2nd hand (IYKWIM) RR10 model exhaust for mine, only other mod is one of these. Goes on nice and tidy and simply plugs into the diagnostics socket, no wiring required.

Back to the oil situation. I'm sure my bike is using some oil but not a lot (Actually I'd prefer it not to use any oil between services like every other bike I've owned!) Its an RR9 I bought late in 2009, due to me dropping it at the start of the summer last year and then getting involved in a protracted dispute with the insurance company I didn't get much use out of it. I'll hopefully get to use the bike more this year and keep an eye on oil usage.
When I got it back from the 600 mile service the oil level was quite low, so I got a litre of oil and topped it up myself using approx 125ml. There is now 375ml of oil left in the bottle and my mileage is at 3000 (Oil at top mark) So a rough guesstimate is that its used 500ml oil in 2400 miles, by my reckoning that's approx 208ml oil per 1000 miles. Think that all adds up correctly.
I'm off to the TT and will probably be doing around 1000 miles while I'm there, so if its 200ml between marks on the dipstick if I put 100ml in after 500 miles or so (Obviously I'll check the level first) it should keep it within the marks. I'm camping so don't want to be carrying a litre bottle of oil with me, a 200ml bottle will fit nicely in my pocket on the way over.
Its fooking sad in this day n age that you need to carry oil around with you for your Honda
