I've noticed my 87 uses a little oil but only if I run 65 mph or more. At 60 or less no oil is used. And it only drops to the low mark on the stick - never any further no matter the speed. I am currently using Rotella 15-40 which I have used in all my bikes for years with never a problem. I'm wondering if this bike just don't like the oil but that doesn't seem logical. My family ran tractor-trailers for years. Sometimes one of the diesel engines simply didn't like a brand of oil so it would burn it. Change the oil and it would stop. The bike never smokes - cold or hot. I see no evidence of oil usage on the plugs. I am thinking it is pulling the oil through the engine vent system. I know - weird. Any ideas?
