I known for awhile that I was burning oil but after this weekends ride, I must be burning a lot. I started the day with the oil level upto the top line on the dip stick and ended a 50 mile run down at the bottom line. I'm thinking top end rebuilt, but I would like to see if it's just a stuck ring before tearing the top down.

Has anybody tried or know of a fuel additive that will help unstick a stuck ring? I know Yamaha has one, but do they work? I would like to try a simple fix before I take the time to tear the thing apart in the middle of the season..
