That isn't surprising...most of the '06s were set to run heavy on the oil from the factory. You can see how much you are using simply by filling the gas tank and oil reservoir all the way, riding for 100 miles or so and then refill the gas tank and oil reservoir again keeping track of how much you add. Do the math and you know your consumption. I would aim for somewhere around 45:1 to 50:1. It a little bit of a pain to adjust since you have to tip the sled on its side...get a service manual and it will tell you how. Make small adjustments and then recalculate...you don't want to lean it out.

I read somewhere that these sleds were supposed to be 100:1. Is that true?
