Its funny you should mention this but yes, I had its bigger brother the GS 850 G , same problem, Apparently, in my situation I did the same thing and went to the shop and let those butchers make it worse !!!, the way i found my leak was by washing the motor with a grease and oil cleaner , strayed the whole motor and wash it all off totally, then I turn her on and let her get to operating temp went for a few mile and came back and checked it, for me it was the head gasket the guys put on and i forced them to do it again,
I found out later that it was common with the suzi's of that model and ended up doing it myself, I used the original gasket and used a compound called gasket goo and it never leaked through out the 8 years i had it .
But before you do anything , surly they gave you warrant y on the work so take it back and demand they do it properly.
Cheers and ride safe

There is pressure in the crankcase when the engine is running and when you rev it up this pressure increases. Oil pressure inceases with RPM and yes the oil will get frothy under pressure.
If you suspect the drain plug is leaking then remove the plug and wrap the threads with teflon tape and reinstall the plug, this should prevent the plug from leaking.

you possibly have a bad seal on your crank. Its called a labyrinth seal and it will be on your clutch side because it is drawing in crankcase oil. the other side would make it run lean by drawing in air by the stator. if it is eating crankcase oil and not leaking it, it is most likely your problem. you can do a leakdown test on it to confirm the problem. put the piston at bottom dead center and compress the cylinder to about 10 pounds of air using a leakdown tester or a compression tester hose that can be used to hook up to an air compressor somehow and hold the pressure, but do not go above that because you could damage those seals with too much pressure. Check to see if the cylinder will hold the pressure for a good amount of time on its own. Check for air coming out of the crank vent hose or the oil fill hole. Also dont overlook the simple things like your premix ratio. try 42:1 or 50:1 ratios of gas to premix oil.

The standard mix is 4 ounces of two stroke engine oil to one gallon of gas. Do not use standard motor oil. Only use two stroke engine oil.

The engine doesn't use oil,the only oil it gets is from the 2 cycle oil mix in the gas,the transmission uses 85\90 transmission oil such as bel-ray or others. I would NOT reccomend running 10\40 in the trans...
