Need recommendation on oil. Having oil consumption issues.
2015 Triumph Tiger 800 XRx 16K mi.
Rotella T6 5W-40
After about 4,200 miles of California riding since July 2018 (6K mi is the recommended interval per owner manual), I just noticed recently that i was short on oil. Had to refill about almost 2 liter of oil and my oil light didn't come on. California does get hot with ambient temp in 100s F and cold with ambient temp of low 20s F. I ride all year long. I was thinking of switching over to T4 15W-40 during the summer months, maybe even Castro 4T 10W-50 to help with oil consumption.
Never had an issue with my other bike, Suzuki GSX-R600 with 62K mi on Rotella T6, with oil consumption. I change oil every April and October, which usually is below 5K mi.
Need your opinions.
