I found the oil low a couple times not sure if its burning it though. It could have been my mistake.
To your point, I run a 180 rear on mine. Outside of the swingarm length, parked next to my 750 in the garage the 1000 is no larger. Its smaller in some respects. On track, I prefer to ride it, although I'm still slower on it.

If yours is burning oil, just put more in it. You should be changing it offten anyway rider.

The burning oil issue can be anything from a slow seat in of the rings to a clogged air filter sucking the oil into the airbox to extended wheelies allowing oil to be sucked into the airbox while the bike is on one wheel.

We work on tons of late model CBR's and the bikes are bulletproof so far.

As Patrick mentioned, they've not narrowed down a single deciding factor. No rhyme or reason with VINs, break-in procedures, or whatever.

Yes, 6,800 '08 CBR 1k's are still available in Tennesse but you should always keep in mind the relationship with your local dealer.

Margins on new units is not what you think it is and the reality is that dealer is selling units below factory invoice (even with current Honda incentives). The units were either further discounted from Honda (crate damage and then repaired), they dealer is the sales guy on his commission or the dealer is dipping into his factory hold-back money that the dealer doesn't see till 180 days after the sale.

When you bring the bike home and discover that the $6 hour make-ready monkey has damaged your bike do you think your local dealer is going to be motivated to take care of it for you (since make-ready damage is not covered under warranty)?

If that '08 starts burning oil at a rate you're not comfortable with are you going to haul the bike back to that Tennesee dealer so he can fight with the local Honda zone rep? Probably not. Yes, all Honda dealers are required to honor warranty issues but it is the Service Manager who can often sell a questionable repair to the zone rep.

Dealer's need to make money to keep the doors open and the lights on. I'm willing to bet you don't work for free so you should not expect anyone else to do it either. Call your local dealer and I'm willing to bet they will be willing to work with you but don't expect them to price match and lose money.

We have awesome prices and yes they are higher than TN dealers but....C'est la vie. G-man is on point 100%. I can't post OTD prices but trust me they are very interesting indeed. I wish I had the cash to get one...

That's what I did and my local dealer came close enough to make it worth buying local.
Buying local is ALWAYS my first option but gotta use net haggle prices.
They also get 99% of accessory sells off of me

Tim,
