My bike has 15800 miles on it and I owned it since new about 10 months ago. I have changed the oil and done basic maintence myself since it was new. I was riding home the other day and heard this horrible tapping noise, so I figured it was my valves needed adjusting (they are supposed to be adjusted at 16000 miles on the 954rr) Anyway I go home and checked the oil level, the oil was gone! I put synthetic in it about 5000 miles ago and I know it was due for a change but it was just gone, there wasnt any reading on the glass hole at all. So I get 1 quart, another , then another and finally it was back to being level. The sound is still there, not as bad as it was but its still there. Then I talk to some service guys I know at a honda dealer and they told me the 954rr starves the third piston while wheelieing. I dont know if it is the piston or not, anyone else have this type of problem? Anyone have any ideas of what I should do or what the problem is? And the service dept. says it most likely will not be covered under the warranty. I cant just go buy another bike, that is not an option.
