My 2000 K1200LT has about 75K miles on it. Up until the past couple oil changes I never had to add oil between changes at 6K miles.
Recently I've had to add a little occasionally to bring it back up to where I could see it in the sight glass.
I figured I had a broken piston land or something. I just finished doing a compression and leak down test.
Bike was warmed up before testing.
Compression was no lower than 170psi and no higher than 175psi on all cylinders with the throttle held wide open. Air filter was left in place.
Leak down test was about 20% on all cylinders which I thought was pretty good.
The results surprised me, I thought I was going to find a problem.
Questions: Do these results seem good? I thought they were okay....
Should I switch to a K&N air filter now? (Okay never mind, that's a joke.
I have no visible oil leaks and no explanation as to why I seem to be using oil.
Maybe my bell housing is slowly filling up? Yikes! (Clutch is okay so far.)
Saddleman, David S., or any other enlighted opinions most welcome. Thanks in advance.
