'hacking is learning'
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.
