Oil consumption
« on: June 29, 2020, 10:20:27 PM »
is it normal for a 2015 Tiger with 31k miles to burn a quart of oil in about 7 months  3200 miles after service?

No,  1 quart in 3200 miles is too much for normal riding. But the words 'after service' would beg the question, was it serviced properly with the correct amount.

Hi and :401:

When mine is serviced I ensure the oil level is at the 'max' line. Then at approximately 3 - 4k miles I usually top up with 1/2litre as it has used some, such that when the 6k service & oil change is due again the oil level is usually around the mid point between 'low & max'.
Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!
