Generally, the only bikes I've had that used any measurable amount of oil has been air cooled bikes(looser tolerances).

I've heard a lot of folk talk about how a bike is run in either leads to oil usage or less so ????

Some prescribe to the "run it like you stole it" , others religiously follow the revs/mls guide  :084: :084:
