I just had my 2006 model Cnr 1000 serviced it's done 200 km since I started it fine this morning then rode about 3 km it started making a grinding noise then shut down now won't start still grinding

Have to know what was serviced to see if this is relevant to the problem. Grinding automatically goes to oil drained and you engine is about to seize up. More info will help on this though.

I switched to the 15w40 diesel oil and my oil consumption dropped...

Believe it or not, it is normal for these engines to use about a quart every 2000 even when they are essentially new. Note that I said, "use", not "burn". The combination of higher compression and operating temperatures causes oil to pass through the engine. You might notice your tail pipes have a good coating on the inside. I managed to slow the process by converting to Mobil 1 0W40. I get much better performance and I only use a quart every 3500-4000.

Oil lamp goes off. full of oil. lamp will go out

The oil light may be defective, but make sure that you have enough oil pressure @ idle. It will not matter how much oil is in there if there is no pressure. If the pressure is low, it is either the oil pump, or the oil system is clogged up somewhere like at the pick up tube at the bottom of the engine block.
There is a solution that you can add to your oil to clean the system. You have to run it a few miles and change it.
Pressure increases with RPMs.
Good Luck.
