Re: Mileage poll and how shes doing?

Just smiles. Sounds like like you're off to a good start. I bought my '08 new, and all I have done is change oil, tires and sprockets.

Every 15,000 miles the valve clearances should be checked. Coolant and brake fluid may be overdue for a change. If you know the history on these few items....

Welcome!

Re: Mileage poll and how shes doing?

Well, I have less miles than you (34000), but the bike still runs like it was new (better, even). Talk to me in a few years when I expect to have close to 100000.

Sold my 2005 with 100,000 on the clock. It was OK had replaced the forks, rear discs and a coil.

My 09 has 36,000 on the clock with no worries.

Re: Mileage poll and how shes doing?

I am at a little 15K. 2009 S with ABS

She has had better days. Still beaten up from my crash, but is running. She doesn't look good but ride wise no difference. Still working on getting her back together little by little.

Re: Mileage poll and how shes doing?

Somewhere north of 61,000 on my 2000. It was not the only bike in the stable at any given time, but for many years my go-to bike. It now plays a secondary role, but still gets out.

47k on my 09 naked. Still fully original (same shock, springs and brake lines).
She's getting a bit rusty and shows her miles when riding 2 up.
Wonder if I should invest and get her in shape or just move on when she dies.

Re: Mileage poll and how shes doing?

Just went over 78000 on my 07. Fuel pump at 70000, otherwise just routine maintenance. (Lots of tires.)
