How much Oil is it using? If it's not leaking it's Burning it. How do the Plugs look? Any Blue Smoke from the Exhaust? Do a Cylinder Leak Down Test.

Sorry had a ticking noise when I first brought it I. To them and oil light was coming on every stop I made, blue smoke coming out the exhaust only on Deceleration, did not do compression test and I will pull the plugs in a little bit, it would burn a quart every 100 miles , I was just wondering if they missed something from rebuilding the bike

Brought back to them three time and they keep on telling me there is nothing wrong with it, and I should just ride it, and I am Worried about it locking up on the road and going down on the bike

That's a sign of leaking valve guides.
