    My 95 has near 15000 miles on her. ( 24140 Kms ) This Summer, a Lizrdbreath cooler was installed, and I believe the mod will increase longevity of the engine expotentionally. It should be interesting to see what others weigh in here with for their totals. Rubber side down, Dave

    26500 miles? Very nice The benefit to this engine is that if you need "engine work" it can usually be done for pennies and basic tools. Unless you're as lucky as I am and have someone damage the head :P Still very cheap though. I'm only at 8000 miles myself but I do remember a member reporting north of 60k miles... It was looooong ago though.

    Two TW's -- one with 21,000 miles the other with 25,000. Both developed base gasket leaks so while apart I replaced the piston rings and lapped the valves. Replaced one exhaust valve because of concave end. Replaced o-rings as need arose. Cleaned carburetors a couple of times.
    Long live the internal combustion engine!

    Mine has done 44310km, & had no speedo for almost a year so is more really.
    Like elime, base gasket on mine has been weeping, for a while now, might get him indoors to sort it one day

    Wow and I thought 16000 KMs was getting high on my 99. No probs yet just oil changes. Even the spark plug is original.

    This thread is very uplifting. My 06 has 1800 miles. I will be in the cemetery before it's even broke in. I figure I will be too old to ride in three to four years. I won't even need tires for it. Someone will get a clean bike when I am gone, I pamper it and keep it in the garage with a cover on it. It is bike #21 for me and it will be my last one.
