DRZ 400 Oil Consumption 800 Miles Low Oil

Recommended Posts

Hey, just making sure my oil consumption is within specs. I ride what I consider to be hard.  Always in 5th going 50-75mph for 30-60 minutes at a time. I topped my Oil off and after 800 miles or so I'm below the low mark on the dipstick. Yes, I know how to properly check my Oil level. I do not have leaks. I do have the black breather box. I use 10-40w Suzuki performance motor oil. 13,000 Miles on original engine.

1 liter per 1,000 miles is considered acceptable.

The amount between marks on the dipstick is about 100 Ml

Depending on how you check the oil can make a big difference too. The time to check is right after a ride  within five minutes. I check and top off mine if it needs it just before it goes into the garage for the night.
