Question 2009 M8 oil Pump sticking

I noticed my new m8 is sucking down oil like there is no tomarrow. I took the belly pan off and was gonna adjust the rod. I then noticed that the pump was half open and the throttle was closed. I removed the rod and noticed that the oil pump is sticking it does not return to the stop. I moved the pump several times and could feel a binding within the pump anybody have any ideas on why.

warranty sucks i dont trust to many people to work on my sled drive two hours leave it drive two hours home drive two more hours pick it up drive home 8 hours of driving still probibly wont be fixed they will just create more problems. if you take it to any dealer then where you bought it they put you to last priority. sounds like 8 hours of driving for nothing.

i worked out a deal with my dealer years ago, they send me the parts i do the work. if you know what your doing this is the only way to go. my life depends on my sled being in top working order, don't think anyone else is as concered about it being properly maintained as i do. thats why i wouldn't let anyone else touch my sled, have had too many problems with the dealer trying to fix things...

i noticed my '08 m8 does the same thing once in a while. the two arms dont stay together like they should. its only done this a few times. a few flicks of the throttle and it hasnt done this. mine must have a wee bit of binding too.

Mine smokes like a biatch. Per 1 tank of fuel it went through about 2/3 of a tank of oil. Thats 20:1 A tad rich I would say. Must have a similar issue.

its easy to see if it is sticking just shine a light down between the throttle boddies and you can see if the two tabs are seperated. if you guys figure out the dealer fix let me know

I just paid 40.00 per gallon of APV today , that stuff is liquid gold .
I am pre mixing at 40:1 .

There is a Mod 800 in the shop , its fuel cap says. 100 Octane only , pre mix 32:1

I still mix mine 40:1

That is alot of money if the pump sticks.
