Forum Folks:

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.

If the rings are not available, then no amount of decarbonization will help without disassembling the engine. The only thing that you can clean the combustion chamber, but the oil zhor will not stop. I repeat, zhor appeared at 360 km.
