    06 650L Oil Burn?

    Hello all, I bought my 06 650L new and change the oil every 1000 miles, followed the breakin procedure to the tee, changed oil at 300 and adjusted valves at 2000. It has 5600 miles on it now mostly at Hwy cruising speeds with some ripping in between. Is it normal to lose a little over half a quart of the 2 quarts I normally put in every 1000 miles or is something wrong? Any feed back apreciated. Tom
  3. I just installed a new "Muzzy" complete exhaust system with there quite core and spark arrestor screen. They told me at the time I ordered it that it would run at 94db. At the Sawmill enduro they tested it at 97db, 1 db over acceptable limits. I contacted Muzzy's and they told me that it tests fine in there tests. To appease me they are sending me some packing (Whoopie). So YZ owners I would recomend another brand of exhaust if you need to get below 97db.
