- 2017 Rocket 3 R modified trike to take wheelchair
Need some help.I have now done 6500 miles and find oil usage is quite high more than 1 litre per 1000 miles .I bought the 2017 Rocker 3r with 3500 miles .I suspect the first 3500 miles running in were done with a gentle throttle and the rings never bedded in properly . There is no trace of oil in the coolant . As a trike it is now getting plenty of revs in every gear . I am using semi synthetics 20 -40 and plan an oil change to fully synthetic 20- 40 Motul . Maybe 20- 50 would be better as do not plan using trike in the winter . Apart from that ,the trike is going great handling and braking much improved thanks to Lumley Engineering .
