So I went to check my oil today and I have an aftermarket oil tank that holds a quart more than stock. But when I checked it their wasn't evin any on my dipstick. And my friend that I ride with says he can smell oil. What would cause my raptor to burn oi? Or is it supposed to burn oil??

piston rings, valve guids, valve seals... there are a number of things that can cause you to burn oil. You or your buddies didn't notice any blue smoke coming from your exhaust while you were riding?

1) Check when hot, after sitting for a minute or two. A lot of the oil slowly returns to the engine when sitting for a long period, and the volume shrinks when cold.

2) Even if you're burning oil, if performance hasn't been affected, you don't need to worry yet - just keep the level up (when hot).

I go through perhaps 4 to 8 ounces per day of riding, and have since I got it 4 years ago... consumption hasn't changed over that time nor has performance.
