Hi, Anonymous I would love to help you with your engine or chassis noise but I just loaned my brand new pair of listening ears to your local dealer's chief technician so he could take your bike for a test ride and give you his professional opinion and estimate about your noise and repair cost. If you are a little short on "DRACHMA" and a Dealership is not on your list of fun places to visit then perhaps the list below will help soothe your worried mind so you can make an informed decision.

Oil "use" on engines can vary widely, depending on the engine design and the conditions under which the motor has been run. VW, for example, considers 1 liter of oil consumption per 1600 km to be perfectly acceptable performance in its automotive engines--much to the chagrin of many car owners, who are used to motors that don't consume oil at even half that rate. In addition, sustained high-speed driving / riding will also tend to consume more oil, mostly because oil vapor is sucked into the engine as part of the emissions system.
After a long (300 km or more) highway run with my old XZ-550, I was always down about half a liter. I could ride much further than that around town and in low-speed riding without consuming any noticeable amount of oil, even when I started using synthetic oil, which had a tendency to leak past some of the motor's gaskets.
I would double-check with other V-Star owners, but I am personally not alarmed at the oil consumption that you have described, even with a relatively new, probably low-mileage motorcycle.
