I just did a 5000Km run and ate over a quart on the trip. I normally use little or none. It seems like the VT1100 uses oil at high RPMs (highway). this is where my consumption was highest. Since I got back I have done an oil change and another 1000 Km and used NO OIL at all. the last 1000Km was all 80Km/H and under.
From observation the 1100 likes to run at around 2500 - 3500 RPM and is happiest in that range. Cruising at 3500 seems to be the best ride and uses no oil. Above 4000 rpm the bike begins to use oil and is generally not as happy. It will give you what you ask for over 4K but it really doesn't like it.
it just is what it is.
