For some reason I keep having to put oil in my quad. There is no leak that I can see so I think somehow it is getting burnt up. Is this pssible/normal?

Is your quad burning oil? From what I've seen and heard, these engines like to burn oil, especially at startup. Maybe you should try parking your quad on a clean piece of cardboard overnight and see if there's any oil marks the next morning.

Its probably 2 and a half weeks between now and the last time I put oil in it, and I put like a quarter of a quart in today.

I park it on a paved surface every night and there is no oil leaking out onto the floor.

When you out riding next time if you're by yourself, take a look behind you while accelerating to see if there's any faint puffs of blue smoke coming out the exhaust. If you can, have a friend ride behind you and keep an eye on the exhaust.

Check the sparkplug. If it is burning oil there will be a little bit of oil in it. If you are burning oil, count on new rings :tup:

My friend fried the rings in his dirtbike, and there was oil on the plug with a faint bluish smoke at startup.
