    Oil going MIA. No oil pressure warning light

    So my oil level has dropped considerably since my clutch plate replacement, but I haven't gotten an oil warning before discovering. No signs of leaks, so looks like the bike's drinking it.

    So, where do I locate the Oil Sensor, since I'd like to replace it, and any thoughts on usual oil consumption on these bikes? Guessing it needs about half a litre after 1000km, but will confirm after picking some up this arvo.

    How many Ks on it now? What oil did you put in after doing the clutch?

    Mine's still using a bit after 17,000km. Apart from a period when it seemed to stop using oil last winter it seems to consistently require 100ml per 1000km.

    Have used Motul 10w 60 (as used by A1) previously, changed to Silkolene 15w 50 and not much difference.

    Low oil level does not mean low oil pressure. If the light on the dash goes out when the engine starts the sensor is working.
