Default Oil consumption

I had my 2007 750 Shadow Aero in for its 8000 mile service last week. When I dropped it off I had the service writer add a note about the oil consumption. When I bought the motorcycle it had 4300 miles on it and it now has about 7800 miles since I purchased it I have had to add about 1 quarts of oil.

I received a call from the service manager and was told a quart of oil consumption per 1000 miles is within specification for your motorcycle.

Does anybody have the Honda specifications I would like to read them?

What are your experiences with the 750 Aero?

What kind of oil do you use?

I am taking a 3000 mile trip this summer I will have to buy or bring 2 quarts of oil with me.

Find the search tab above, and type in oil type, and you will get enough info for 2 days of reading.
The type of oil you use can definitely effect oil consumption.
I am changing my oil today, and am going to try Rotella T6 5w-40. There is a lot of good said about this oil.
Welcome to this forum, and everyone here likes pics!

The 750 line takes more oil than normal if you are running at freeway speeds. Our experience is; 60 and under takes almost none, above 60 and it increases. The wife's near new Aero needs topping off daily after high speed freeway riding to keep it at the marker.
