I just added 700 ml to my bike after slightly more than 5300 km. This is the first oil I have added since the initial service. I have had no oil leaks since purchasing new so I had assumed the level was stable. Lesson learned for me is to check this bike routinely. Good advice described above on using same procedure each time following a ride. I agree that running at idle till warm seems wasteful.

That sounds like typical consumption during break in which can take 10-15,000km for some bikes. Keep us posted how much it uses between 5300 and 10000. Also do lots of regular checks after the 10k service.
