Ditto above.
Mine does the same thing.

My bike has close to 17000 miles on it and burns no more than a 1/4 of a quart of oil in 3000 miles between changes.

At 16K miles I changed the oil. Now at 17K, the window shows the oil level at the bottom line (needs one quart after 1,000 miles)

Hi
First time checking out this forum - happy to meet y'all. I'm looking into oil consumption too, so I'm glad to see this thread. I've been going through oil surprisingly fast, like a quart every 1500 miles. Unfortunately I had to rebuild the top ends last summer due to a bad CCT installation. I'm wondering if the oil consumption is due to the rebuild or if it's common. From what I see here, some go through oil a lot and some don't. Can Honda build quality vary that much?

Does anyone have suggestions for checking oil leakage at the valve guides? I replaced the seals but not the guides when I put new valves in.

Thanks for the help.

i'm sure how you ride, where you ride, and what oil you use play a vital role in oil consumption. i never question the honda gods.... unless it's an r/r!

man, mine's never burned any oil, whatsoever! I've only used synthetic; amsoil or mobil1 motorcycle blends. You might want to try switching oil?

Back when I used to wrench, Honda considered one quart every 1k miles normal. Mine uses none.
