Triumph 675 oil usage

Hi all, thinking of swapping my '07 R6 for a 675, and wondered if there are any known reliablility issues - apart from the high oil usage?

Daytona 675

Have owned 675 for nearly a year, best thing I ever did! So much fun, no problems yet and have given it many a thrashing round local and over the Isle Of Man. It loves it on the mountain!!!!!...Power delivery is so smooth, handling so light and brakes so F***ing good...Looks the part, sounds the part and rides faultless. Yes it drinks a bit of oil but I am a bit dry after a good thrashing!! Buy one its a no brainer if you ask me...

:blink::lol::shock: The crazy gang approve.

Oil use

To cure the oil useage problem, you could run it in on CHEAP MINERAL oil. Then replace it with the synthetic oil Triumph recomend.

Oil gets used in new bikes as they run them on synthetic straight from the crate. This means the rings/bore don't actually bed-in properly. You NEED cheap oil to bed an engine in.
