    I ought to know the answer to this already, but I don't.

    Can anyone give me an idea of how much oil I can expect my air-cooled to use?  Not that there's a problem, just that I need to know how much spare to take to the International Rally if I use that bike.

      Hi Chris,

               You should get about 450 miles per litre with the oil pump set as per the workshop manual. There will be more info on the ROC website.

        I monitored the consumption over 1550 miles of the International Rally and it worked out at around 600 miles per litre.  That was at moderate speeds, typically about 60 - 65mph.
