It is therefore extremely important to closely monitor the oil consumption of your engine, as you will in this way hopefully get sufficient warning of the onset of problems to ensure that they can be rectified before additional consequential damage occurs. I started to see high oil consumption on my motor at around 9,000 kms, right at the end of my 12 month warranty, and have been changing the oil and topping it up regularly ever since.
The factory have supplied me with a complete upgrade kit, shipped to me directly, as my original distributor and dealer are no longer part of the Laverda channel. I will have these fitted soon, at my cost. The approximate retail value of the kit is around US$2,000, based on the ex-factory invoices, although individual distributors and dealers might charge different rates for the parts, in the unfortunate event that you cannot have your upgrade kit supplied within warranty or as ex gratia post warranty period expiry.
