Ideally this Community strives to be a safe and neutral playground for motorcycle enthusiasts. There is a ton of nasty in the world - sure. It doesn't mean it needs to be here. There are many other platforms to argue out the ugly. Consider using those.

Let's try to help by offering assistance and ideas to solve a member's problem and keep the thread alive.

If the bike has been dropped a lot and oil overfilled, you could get oil in the combustion chamber. Then a piece of burnt carbon could get between the ring and cylinderwall effecting compression and oil consumption.

Replace 1/2 quart of oil with marvel mystery oil, run for a few miles to get good and hot and replace oil. Good cleaner. Run a good quality fuel injector cleaner too. You might get some of that carbon dysolved off the rings and cylinder engine casings.
