SOURCE: I just noticed the oil level on my 950 Vstar is

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.

Clicking noise coming from around flywheel.


If the car is an automatic, it will have a thin metal flex plate, rather than a regular flywheel. If the flexplate gets a crack in it, it would cause a bit of noise. See if there is an inspection plate on bottom front of transaxle. Remove the inspection cover to look at the flex plate. Turn the engine over to view the flexplate all around. Look for cracks, maybe a loose or missing mounting nut where torque converter mounts on flex plate. If you see nothing, leave the inspection cover off, and run the engine and listen closely for a problem from that area.
Leaking oil, eh? Don't know if related, but while looking at the flexplate, check if motor oil is leaking out the rear main crankshaft seal. It will be fitted to the rear engine block, in front of the flex plate. Oil would be dripping off the rear of engine, or maybe collecting at bottom of bell housing, evident when inspection cover is removed.
