    2014 cb1000r /consuming engine oil

    Hi there,

    as mentioned my bike has been consuming oil, so i decided to bring it to my local dealer after reaching out to Honda. Conclusion made by the dealer along with Honda is that each 1000 cc engine burns a quart of oil every 1000 miles. I'm not to convinced about this but Honda seems to agree with this. My bike has no visible leaks and I've done oil changes as per manual specs. I'm using the honda brand 10W 40.

    Any other CB1000Rs out there that also consume oil?

    Thanks in advance for your input.

    Hi
    My 2014 CB1000r never needs oil between changes and I do ride it hard.... My 2009 CBR1000rr drank oil which Honda tried to pass off as normal 1lt to 1000 km was acceptable so they said..... I have owned Honda bikes since they first came into GB and the 2009 Blade was the only one that ever worried me with oil consumption

    My bike is 2009. Has now done around 22,000 miles. I tend to ride fast but rarely accelerate hard unless there's some competition around. Lol.

    It never uses any oil between oil changes. If a bike is run in correctly in the first couple of thousand miles it should be like this.

    Those who say Blast it from right out of the box are talking out of the bit of their body that sits on the bike's seat.

    I have done 27,000 mile ++ on my 2014 CB1000R. I ride fairly hard. Commute almost daily. Take it on the twisties, have had it on the track a few times.

    It uses no oil at all.

    The 2008-onwards CBR engine had a reputation for drinking oil. The CB1000R engine is based on the 2007 and earlier CBR engine. Tell your dealer to quit havering and threaten him with ecky thump!

    The 1 quart per 1000 miles is set by Honda corporate, not the dealer. We have to follow the same numbers on the auto side. Yes, the numbers are bullshit.

    Your dealer agrees with that amount because they are supposed to go by what Honda says, or they just don't have any sense, or both.

    Obviously, if an engine uses that much oil, unless it's a Model T, something is very wrong.

    How much does it actually consume? How does the dealer know how much it consumes? Has the dealer done or even started an official oil consumption test? (they would have given you a form)

    My 2011 cb1000r never used any oil but my 2005 cbr600rr used about a half pint every 1000 miles.

    I put over 110,000 kms on my 2012, changing oil every 8000 kms ( 12,000 kms is the spec). I commute; I ride 'spirited' day-trips; I tour a bunch ( again, riding pretty hard); and I run a few track days per year. it NEVER needed a top-up between changes. Honda has the right to say that 1L per 1000 kms is "acceptable" , but I'm afraid your engine is not typical.
    oh, and I did not baby the engine, even during break-in. I had it up over 200 kph with 25 kms on the clocks, cuz I just HAD TO feel what that was like, right away...
    piling the mileage on...

    I have a 2009 model that I bought and registrated as new in 2010. The bike has done around 33000km and uses no oil.

    i have had a number of honda motor bikes ... not one of them used one drop of oil ever ... never needed to top up between service intervals ....
    only ones i saw use it were old and ragged the fcuk out of ... lazy oil changes or defective ... likely piston rings or worn bores ...
