I have an 02 620 dark ie and it seems like it burns more oil (10w-40) than it should. (a quart every 3000m) not much special done to bike just k&n filter, box not cut yet. Getting new plugs, leo vance exhaust, and new paint. would like to have this figured out first.

Welcome to the board. That kind of oil consumption is not excessive, IMO. In fact if you ride hard most of it is probably being pumped through the breather to the airbox. Any signs like oil fouled plugs etc that you've seen?

thank you, the spark plugs are going to be changed today. I do ride it kind of hard, so if it's being pumped through the breather is there any way to stop it. thicker oildifferent berather, etc.?

Function of the beast. The more WOT you do the more will pump. My 96 900 will pump 4-8 oz. at a 150 mi trackday. If it's not smoking or oil fouling plugs, a qt in 3K is not an issue. If it was exceeding a qt in 500-1K on the street I might start looking for a cause.
