Burning too much oil

I have a 98 AC ZR 600 efi and it has been an unreal sled until this season. I have had absolutly no problems with it whatsoever but this season it has decided to use alot more oil than it ever has. Now I would rather it use more oil than none at all but this stuff aint cheap! Is there any way I can turn down the ammount of oil that goes into the fuel system? I dont want to mess around with my efi because it has worked so well in the past. Thanks alot

Re: Burning too much oil

There is a linkage system for the oil that is attached to your throttle linkage and can be adjusted. On our 2000 Powder Specials with 600EFI is had a plate with an alignment mark. On our 600 it is to be adjusted for alignment with full throttle. It looks similar to a brake cable adjustment for a bicycle. I turned ours down about two turns and tested until I achieved the reduction and not comprise the reliability. Another alternative is to remove the oiling system and plug and/or cap the connections and start mixing your oil and gas. My neighbor did that to his 02 AC Mnt Cat 800EFI and claims oil usage to about half. Good Luck!
