burned oil

Hello, I serviced the bike and found that it burned some oil. Is it the fault of the bleed pipe from the sump.
some opinion?

Hi Alexandros

Some Tiger's do use a lot of oil. Mine does.

I wouldn't worry about it, especially in a country as hot as Greece !!

Safe riding.
Regards,
Graeme.

You might want to do a compression check.
Even getting to the valve guide seals is a bit of a project on these things.

Half a liter over 6,000kms? That's 500ml. Not worth fretting over. Check the oil level regularly, and enjoy the ride!
