I used fully synthetic oil when i changed my oil for the first time at 850 kilometers.
What kind of oil did you guys use there?
Thanks for answers...

10w40 300v motul full Synthetic. Change after every race wknd.
1880 km on my M2. It has had 6 oil changes so far.

I know it seems like a lot but Iím racing mine so it needs the fresh oil.
If you Ymirís this oil in your bike you will be good for 5k km.

Hope this helps.
Cheers.

Thanks Rasta Racing!
Just thought maybe my oil consumption is related to the fact that i used fully synthetic oil too early.
But if you used fully synthetic oil from the start, that is not the reason.
I am using motul 300V 10W50.

Just a question, donít shoot the messenger... I assume the running in wasnít to gentle? Glazed bores can cause an issue.  :084:

Stone me
I actually retracted the engine according to the fuel tank sticker.
But i did the same thing 2013 with my Daytona 675R and it did not need a drop of oil.
After running in, both machines were driven at full throttle after the engine was warm.

Triumph says that both methods of running in are ok.
Here in the forum there were definitely others which have retracted as described on the sticker..?
Can you notice an oil consumption?

Ran mine in quite hard,

First 50 miles up to 4K then next 50 up to 5k then next 400 at up to 6k , 7k on motorways,oil change at first service 500 miles. Will now start to increase revs on every ride, so 8k, 9k , adding a dose of full throttle occasionally. By 800 miles will not be thinking about it anymore. I will keep an eye on oil level, hopefully ok.

I do think (personal opinion from a qualified motor technician) that the method on the tank sticker is a bit to gentle, but each to their own.  :084:
