These bikes like gas and oil.  Gas mileage sucks, probably still related to the carb tuning I've yet to tackle.  They also naturally use a bit of oil.  Everyone I've talked to says the same thing and not to sweat it.  The first time the big red oil light came on I nearly shit.  I've never had a bike with an "oil level" instead of an "oil pressure" light.  I don't like red lights on my dash so I cleaned out an old 2 stroke bottle from my string trimmer and filled it with Yamalube 4 stroke oil.  Now I have a few ounces with me in case (like Sunday) where I'm out in the boonies and the light comes on.  Pull over, dump it in, no worries.

Same thing happened to me on my FJ1200 - oil light comes on...time to change underwear... ;D


The annoying thing about the FJ is the low fuel light is also red - it came on one night and I'm thinking it's the oil light and expecting to see a hole in the cases or something  >:(

Carrying spare oil around with you... now you sound like a 2stroker :P
