Three of us have x trainers and they all sip oil did make me nervous when I got mine ..they all seem fine do a fair bit of slow riding on them so that probably makes a big differenceIs the oil tank emptying quicker? Mateys xtrainer seems to use a minimal amount of oil, almost to the extent that it looks like something is wrong!
What? This is a smoker thread! God bless the carb I say!New oil pump today but no change to the issue. I have rigged up a circuit to measure the number of pulses sent by the ECU to the oil pump. It shows that the rate rises from 1 pulse every 2 seconds at tickover to 4-5 pulses per second as soon as you twist the throttle. According to Dellorto's tech spec, that gives you 100cc of oil per hour at 4 pulses per second!
Looks like either it's new ECU time or I need to learn to ride fast enough to use 5 litres of fuel per hour!
I don't suppose anyone knows what the oil pump pulse rate is on the TPIs? They seem to run at very low oiling rates.
They are but only because for Europe they come through technical touch who set them firm for fast sand. Only Yamaha’s have a reasonable setting. Easily fixed though, then superb.I thought that too before I put some proper oil in the Sachs forks. They are the best "out of the box" forks I've had. The KYBs on the REs are too hard unless you're racing hard.
