690E - Out of Oil after 1800mi

Hi guys,

In Aug I bought a new 14 690E.

Since wear in and it's first 600mi service I've been loving it and riding it like I stole it at times.

However, it burned out of oil completely after 1800mi.. I mean I put in 1.5l of 10w60 to mid up the guage, and the capacity is only 1.7l?

I've spoken to a KTM garage and they're going to look at it, how I've ridden it etc.

However... I would never expect a bike to burn through its oil this quickly. I'm concerned if it's damaged.

If there is damage... Do you think I have a case under warranty for repairs?

Cheers

It's your bike mate, you should do your own checks, and top stuff up when needed...

Like you say tho, where's it all gone in that time! :eek:

That's an awfull lot of oil to either, leak, burn or otherwise spill. Has the bike been on its side, is the engine leaking, does the exhaust burn with blue smoke, is the air filter full of the stuff? Are you sure of the before and after oil levels to give you that amount of loss! Do you have any more info? Cheers nige.
