K13GT excessive oil consumption.

Hi, first time here. I have a question about this K13GT we speak so highly of. I bought this bike, 2009 model, with around 40 000kms on the clock. Since I got it I have had excessive oil consumption. This is not a consistent though as some trip use less than others. My last was the worst. I travelled around 850kms with no lack of or loss of power but with a loss of 2 litres of oil. My canister has NO wet oil on it and not a lot of smoke was noticed from bikes travelling with me. It seemed to occur more when I rode a little harder than the norm. I have since contacted various dealers who all seem to come up with the same answer. Carbon or muck stuck in the oil ring. It was suggested I run the bike on mineral oil for a tank or two and then flush the engine before refilling with fully synthetic oil as recommended. As replacing the rings is a hugely expensive option I was hoping for some suggestions.... HELP !!
