Oiling problem on New KLRs?

I was looking at buying one of these new KLRs, but I've been told and read that the new ones are prone to oiling issues. ANyone have any insight? They get Crazzzzy gas mileage, which is wexactly why I was looking at getting one.

I have been reading and searching about the same thing...if you listen to both of these guys they have the same comment about oil issue (engine use oil)

If you want to know how fast, get one and check it out, there is no substitute for Horsepower!
