I am coming up on my second oil change since owning my XR, and have been checking the oil after every ride, and it seems after the 600 mile interval there was a slight amount of oil usage? (maybe a 1/2 inch) Is this normal or? Also, how many change the oil every 600 miles as the manual recommends? Let me know- Thanks guys:thumbsup:

Thats nothing. I use more oil than that on a 100 miler but I ride pretty hard.

Yup Normal......depending on intensity i'll use about that much. We did a fast 300 in Baja and used 3 times as much.

So racing an XRR you should expect oil usage and add as needed during competition? Even a brand new bike?

That seems more then what mine uses..
But any engine that gets worked hard enough will use some oil...

So let me ask you- what intervals do you do your oil changes and what usage have you experienced with your XRR'S? Thanks for the feedback everyone!
