The only time I noticed oil consumption was when I didn't torque the oil fill plug to correct spec. There's two oil filters, two oil screens, a drain plug, a fill plug, the two crank case covers, and they're all supposed to be to spec. How the motor was broken in makes a difference, how it's ridden... there are quite a few variables but bottom line, I agree, $11k dirt bikes shouldn't leak a drop and it sucks for those that are experiencing the issue.

Running 2 to 2.2 liters works just fine.  Does not spit oil out the air cleaner.

More oil is better than less oil.

I still change every 600 miles + or -. 

Good Luck.
