2004 Vulcan 2000 Burns Oil
Can’t remember if I’ve posted this question on here before or not, but here goes.
I have a 2004 Vulcan 2000, it has just about 70,000 miles. She burns oil. Was told by the guy I bought it from that it used a quart about every 1000 miles. Well, I changed the oil and made sure it was at the correct level. The next day me and a friend went from Cincinnati to Louisville and back. About halfway back, we stopped for gas and checked the oil. Took about 2 quarts to bring it back to the right level. It doesn’t smoke, and you only smell oil burning if you run it hard.
I will admit, I am not the most mechanically inclined, unless I have worked on an issue before. I have been told that burning oil can be from valve seats and piston rings needing replaced. I have looked all over the motor and can not find anywhere where oil may be coming out. And there is not any oil sitting under the bike. I’ve tried finding a rebuild kit to no avail, and I can’t find what all I would need for a rebuild as I can get on bike bandit or other sites and order what I need.
I’m looking for any advice or if anyone has had this issue before. Thanks
