My 05 wr 450 uses about 5oz every 2 hours of operation on the road its street legal. The bike does not smoke and there is no oil in the coolant. Any idea's.

Everybody is busy arguing, wait till there done.  :rolleyes: 


Just kidding. :goofy:


Sounds like she is using some oil. Is she a high miler. Are you measuring it on the dipstick.

Just because there is no smoke, does not mean you are not burning it.


How do you know you are loosing 5 oz every 2 hours?


Where are your crankcase breather tubes routed?


Is there oil in your airbox?
