Yes, I would say I'm a candidate for needing the replacement bolt. Just checked oil again and needed another 500ml.

So

6000kms = 500mls oil added
9500kms = 500mls oil added

That's can't be right.

I'll check the level in the morning just in case.

That's about 85mL / 1000km, so a little bit more than me. Not sure if thats excessive...engines consume oil, but whats "normal"??? However, if you added 500mL in one go then you'd have had to been pretty low when you topped it up.

But that would mean 1 litre of oil running down the side of the motor in a very obvious way?

Hi riders, yes I am asking myself the same questions as there is no pool of oil under my bike. I did the correct procedure for checking oil eg, run engine, wait a few mins, hold bike upright and inspect level etc. At 6000 after I put in 500ml it was then at top line on level, so I wasn't riding on empty. Checked it again about 3 weeks later and still had a good level. But then checked it over weekend at 9500 and again below bottom line so added prob around 500ml again at a guess, maybe slightly less.

Neighbour's been riding for years and tells me 1lt over 10000 is def not right. I heard rider member 'Genie' horror story about a four month rebuild for similar problem so I hope I am not in same position. Hopefully its just this bolt issue. I ride it as a commuter doing 120km per day and Perth has been very hot this summer so maybe oil consumption is within limits, but maybe not. I also checked my coolant level at about 8000km's and that was also below bottom line, so could indicate bike has been running hot.

A few issues, we'll see. Just need it to hang in there for 4 months until the upgrade! (not that I want to sell a bike with problems of course).

Thanks for the heads up.

Just called my local dealer and the know nothing about it lol. Didnt take my word for it iether, even though I mentioned it's on the ACCC website. They are going to call Honda to confirm and get back to me.

Yes. They are not loosing oil due to this bolt. They are consuming oil inside the engine, ie. "burning" it.

Just booked it in for tomorrow morning, local Honda didn't know about recall either. Technician asked same question eg pool of oil, I said no must be burning it. He is contacting Honda re the recall and oil issue, hopefully one in the same problem.

WTF is this numbering system about???

CBR500RA - MLHPC44U0D5000001 TO MLHPC44UXD5000829 How the heck can this be "from...to..."It changes a letter from "0" to 'X" in the middle as well as the last three digits???? They are not sequential/cant be understood what lies in between.

CBR500R - MLHPC44U0D5000189 TO MLHPC44U9D5000773 How the heck can this be from...too...It changes a letter from "0" to '9" in the middle as well as the last three digits???? They are not sequential/cant be understood what lies in between. They are not sequential/cant be understood what lies in between.

Side note, the first series of the R (MLHPC44U0D5000001) and the RA (MLHPC44U0D5000189) COULD be understood as being "from"..."to", and account for 198 bikes). However they are not presented that way: they are the starting point for two different models...
