Question about Motorcycles
Nothing there no oil in it an dont know what to do an dont want to drive it untill i find out the promble.want to know the reason it used all the oil in such a short time
What make/moder is it, a 2 or 4 stroke? Either way it sounds like the piston rings are worn which is a top-end engine rebuild. You could probably keep driving once you're topping it up with oil.

The ticking noise you hear is most likely a sticky valve. I would be concerned about the oil consumption , sounds as though it maybe still under warranty. I would take it in and address the issues

new engines burn oil until the rings wear in, if you were riding it hard and never noticed oil gone , possible damage. i would top up oil and keep and eye. if its still under warranty i would suggest dealer look at it

All four stroke motors use straight gasoline or benzin. Only 2-stroke engines use a gas (benzin) + oil mix. Even some later model 2-stroke engines run straight gasoline and have a pump that mixes the oil with the gasoline. Most 2-strokes built after the mid-70's have the pump. You can easily by examination of the throttle cable. If it's equipped with a pump, the throttle cable will split from one cable on down to two cables where it enters the engine. Read your owner's manual.

SOURCE: Engine oil appears to be
Check your oil level . If it is too high smell the oil to see if it is fouled with gas. If your carb needle sticks the carb may over flow filling the engine. When the engine is too full the breather blows the oil and gas into the air box. Another way to get gas in the oil is if the fuel petcock malfunctions and pours gas into the intake manifold. If the diaphragm of a vacuum petcock gets a hole in it , the engine may flood with gas. The gas flows into motor and past the rings. If you look under the engine in front of the rear wheel you may see a tube with a plug in it. Place a pan under the tube and pull the plug. It is a pollution tube for emptying the crud out of the bottom of the air box. Some Honda's used to fill there engines with gas randomly. If it happened you just changed the oil & air filter, and kept on driving. It just happened for no logical reason. So check your petcock and carbs for problems, change your oil and air filter, and always turn your petcock off when not riding.
