Hi,
I just checked my oil level and noticed that is dropped from full to add 150 ml level after 250 miles do you think that is normal?

Not unless you have some visual leaks somewhere. Could be getting sucked into the intake, but your performance would really be ****ty.

I have a similar issue with my CityX, but not sure if it's normal. I check the level a few days after a ride and the level will be off the stick, I'll add some oil, ride again and then before the next ride it will be high. So I wound up taking some back out. Just as much as I put in. At least my bike's not burning it.

So it seems to me that there may be a fluctuation caused by heating(expansion)/cooling(contraction) of the air in the crankcase or oil tank pushing the oil around. I don't think the oil will expand/contract with temp changes that much. Not enough oil is bad, but I'm too much oil will be just as bad.

Anyone else experience this?[confused]

That's only 5 ounces, between it getting into your engine and oil filter that's probably completely normal.
