Comment by Mike B: 12,100 miles on my 07 Almost 1 year old!! I just adjusted the valves and sync the carb, getting ready for another 3k

Comment by Sunderer: 13,000 and still going strong! I do my valve adjusts change my oil and kiss her like the mistress i don't need!

Comment by MartyH: Nothing but Amsoil synthetic oil changes and annual valve adjustments on my 2001. 30,920 miles as of 8/06

Comment by Zeke: I've got an '06 with just over 2000 miles now, no problems yet.

Comment by Daryl: 1989 Ninja 250 Original engine valves burnt up and would not start at 34,000 mile, replaced with 1999 engine paid $260 for it of e-Bay.(valves was adjusted properly at every 8,000miles)

Comment by Nathan: 6k for a 1993

Comment by Sameraz: '96 with 26K miles on it currently

Comment by CharlesH: Haven't even had it for a full year yet. 3500 miles.

Comment by Andrew Duthie: No major repairs? Hell, hardly any major maintenance, either. One valve adjustment (thanks, Duke!), one chain (d'oh!), some tires, some oil... Yeah, that's about all of it. (Oh -- I'm at 21,000 miles at the moment. Kinda slacked off after year 2.)

Comment by Phil in San Diego: 8500 miles in less than 8 months-just new tires and looks like front brake pads this weekend.

Comment by Eric R: I'm almost scared to answer this poll. My '99 is now past the known minimum engine life (~30K), quality of maint. by the two PO's is pretty much unknown, but it's been awfully infrequently serviced by me... Guess I'll find out just how tough this little engine is.

Comment by Papaflynny: '03 6,700mi. Valves adjusted (6/8 tight) and a new pair of sneakers (Pirelli ST66)

Comment by ZZR_Ron: miles.... whats a mile???

Comment by Jeb: My red bike has over 40K on it, and is still running strong. Put about 20K on my black bike before putting it up for sale, and it already had over 10K on it before I got it; still starts right up and pulls strongly as well.

Comment by Gordon: No problems with the bike. I wish I could say the same for my other vehicles.

Comment by Duke Dunsford: I'm at about 21,000 miles in the 7 months since I built this bike. It seems like it's about broken in now. Ask me again next year...

Comment by Woody: almost 90,000 Klm's ( 56,000 Miles )
