I had to leave my R1100RS, covered, but idle for three years out in CA. Shipped it back and did a full restoration for the exterior, consumables, brake lines, fuel filter, fuel lines, shocks, etc.. looks and works wonderfully, but.. oil consumption is high, small tell tale blue smoke in exhaust and decreased MPG. I knew sitting idle for so long would take it toll in some areas.
What are people's thoughts? Is this most likely corroded cylinder and piston rings? I don't have my tools here in DC to a wet/dry compression check. Any other thoughts?
If it needs a rebore and rings, what is the general price range, $500, $1500, more??
Thanks for any advice?
