oil consumption and engine flooded

so, sunday when i was cleaning my bike i discovered that the oil window was completely empty(bike on straight position), this morning I've added almost 1lt of oil! Is it a normal consumption for a 08 after 10k km?
Also when I was heating it up my father revved the engine and flooded it -.-, bike didn't start.... made the standard procedure(full throttle etc....) and the bike fired up again without problem. Could this be related with the low oil or is just due to the stupid move of my dad?
thanks!

When you had the bike straight up and no oil shown, was the bike on and running? If so, the oil cycles through so you won't see any. When you turn it off, after a few minutes it settles back down and you can see it through the site glass again.

If the bike is working as it should you would have no problems leaving it on the stand and revving it until you're blue in the face so if it truly "flooded" by your father reving the bike, there is something not right.

Do you have a PC or Bazzaz unit on the bike? Seems like it's running rich, hence the flooding at idle.

As far as oil consumption, follow the manual for checking the oil every time. If you stray from EXACTLY what they say you need to do (like say checking it cold, checking it in a rear stand, etc.) you do not have a clear indication if an oil useage pattern. Not saying you can't check the oil in any of the ways I described, but your results will be different checking it different ways. Until you establish a pattern, you are guessing.

honestly this is the first time in three years that bike stalled.
it was just heating up,temperature was near 40C/100F..my dad revved it and bike litterally slowly died.
tried to turn it on a couple of times but nothing, made the procedure to burn the petrol into the cyl and the bike fired up again at frist try.
The only problem that i know was there was lack of oil.

just akra slipon with silencer.
Maybe air filter(stock) dirty?
Bike is running fine right now, just went for a ride and no problem at all...at lest it seems so.
the only thing that i've notice is the exhaust sound, for some reason the noise is more "deep" and the clutch is by far working better.
