I replaced the the oil in the transmission with RedLine Heavy shockproof . But when I drained the oil Only 10 oz. came out...I had the dealer do the first service at 1000 and the bike now has 3500. Did the dealer not put enough in or does it burn that fast(which I find hard to believe)

I have never known a transmission to burn fluid at all. Actually if you change it every 5000 miles you will probably find it looking as pretty as when you put it in and no level loss(minus small about that won't drain). I would doubt that having only about half of what you should have in it would be from anything but not having the right amount to start with or a leak. If you have a leak, even if it's a small one, there would be signs of it on the bike somewhere. My guess is that there was not enough put in.

Later,
