I took my 05 SV out of storage at the end of February and changed the oil filter to a K&N chrome and did a full oil change (with kawasaki full synthetic*). I put in about 2.2L, ran it for a bit, saw that the level was at low and put it about 200 ml more till it was at the full line.
Anyway, I've been using it lots since then (300 km) and I started it up last week and it was making a weird rattling sound when I revved it as it was warming up. I checked the oil level and there was NOTHING in the oil sight. I was confused, as no oil was leaking out mid-ride or on the cement where she sits at night. I put in 400 ml till she was full again (so she lost 400 ml in a week) and went about my business, but recognized it was odd.
Just went to start her up and the oil level again is nonexistent. How does this happen? Is it burning oil somehow? I don't remember this happening last year, but I only bought it at the end of Oct 09 and winterized it in the beginning of December. Any ideas? Big time problem?
*could the Kawasaki oil be an issue? The filter?
Thanks in advance
