Whats the normal consumption for this motorcycle at open road , ridding at 5-6k rpms?
Im asking whats your milage not in general.
I have this bike for 12years , now Im at 58.000kms. I usually had around 5l per 100km. (sorry for the metric system guys hope you will convert cuz I really don't understan gallons much
I done some cleaning of the carbs last year, sync by mechanic, some tweaking of the screws (still thinks they are bit rich), valves are probably near 9k kms since last check, but in manual service is at 11.000km as I remember.
Now I think my bike is maybe a bit more, around 5.2l per 100kms. normal speed, normal rpms as I said. Open road. Is that ok for 58.000kms engine?
Also I noticed that engine is consuming a bit more oil than before. Its never below min mark ofc, but I put maybe 2 dl of oil in 1000kms, is that ok? Maybe it is about oil brand. Now Im using Ipone 15w-50, semi synt. I always used 15-50 since day 1, and semi-synt. Best oil for me was Fusch Silkolene from France, but its almost double price.
I read on 250 forum , I think its on their wiki, that its normal for 250 to consumpt oil (when rev hard ) and it should be checked every full tank of gas. True?
