I know.yes I know the feeback that has been given on the site about oil usage, new bikes and time.. ... whatever one more time fduring these non riding says...
History-My 99 RT using conventional m/c oil after 27,000 miles went to synth. after lets just say i kept it at high speed for a lot of hours. It quit using oil then and then I went synth. The engine noticeably loosened up and was deemed broken in. It now has 270,000km on it and it is in mid life.
Situation: 2011 R1200Rt 10k miles using synth since 2,500 miles. Uses 1 qt/2,000 miles. Normal as per BMW. Way More oil usage than I would like.
At this mileage I could 1. use conventional m/c oil and run it until oil use drops i.e another 10 k miles.
2. Run it hard with synth in it and add oil, like a lot. Forever?
The question that has been dscussed in other threads - is the bike broken in/engine sealed at full compression at 10 k miles?. Can I put nonsynth in and run it ( high speed/rpm) until the rings finally seat like they diid for my 99 or am I stuck with running an oil user/suck?
I'm thinking of going with a new engine ring seating regime. By me to ebb the oil use= Plan- run Non synth run for 10k to seat the rings, and I should be good to go???
What is your $.50 on this? This is way more than .02 Cents for most of the feedback on her
