I watched a couple of video's on oil consumption where this guy's M8 was using oil and he decided to do a big bore kit and cams to fix the using oil problem and make his bike faster. The mechanics at the HD shop said the reason M8's use oil was due to the oil ring, swiper ring, i think he called it, was to thin. The oil ring in the big bore kit was much thicker, no doubt. At least that was the reasons that shop came up with. Also they said that they have found on several M8 bikes that the parts that squirt oil under the pistons were loose and had to be re-torqed before they buttoned everything up. Just passing on some info i heard from a well established HD shop that i subscribe to on U tube.
