Mine started that at 40k. The usage varies a little, but gets up to 1 quart per 1k miles. I've got 132k on it now and it still runs like new, so it may do fine for you. I'd love to know the real...

I'd like to head up there sometime to check it out, as well. I'm subscribed to see what info you get. Looks like it would be a beautiful place to wheel!

I didn't see it. I think it would have to be disassembled to get to it. Might be worth pulling it apart and looking. When I get the EVO on there, I'll have plenty of time to take this thing apart...

I've used 5w30, 10w30, and 0w40, and in the end, there was no real difference. There was a period where the 0w40 seemed to be consumed a little less, but that didn't last. In fact, the last time I...
