What's your mileage?

I've heard people with high mileage on this forum. I'm pretty impressed. I wish I could ride more, but the weather doesn't allow us here in Canada.

So please tell us your mileage & maybe a pic.

Cheers

We had a fella on here from the UK who was a motorcycle courier. If I recall he posted 111111. Yes, sport bikes CAN go more than 25K. Good job Sir, How many of those miles are yours?

Not a Suzuki but a local guy I know has over 300,000 miles on a 2003 Honda F4i that he bought new. I've known him since 150,000 miles

I've always maintained that pretty much any modern bike, especially the Japanese brands, will easily go 100k miles. Most get crashed or abused to death way before those miles.

My previous gixxer 6 had 80k km when I got rid of it & the owner now has 96k on it.

Yeah I'm a Suzuki fanboy. But Champions choose Suzuki

Awesome! Yeah, car seats are hard to put on these things. Cape Breton is an amazing ride.

Only 13k miles on my K6 1000. My excuse is I've been working overseas for 7 years and the bike's been in storage at my folks' place. But now I'm back and ready to put some more miles on!

I've got a Volvo wagon with 226K miles on it though

Between the end of 2002 and spring of 2007 I put 80K on my 2002 GSXR 750 but haven't ridden it since. I ended up buying other bikes because the 02 began having so many problems which I still cant figure out (see other thread). Sport bike engines are no different than anything else. Use and abuse are what does them in, not just the fact that they are a sport bike.

Sold a 2004 1k with 150000 kms on the clock, no prollems, still ran very well.
Then sold a 2007 with 145000 kms on it, drove down the road juss fine , no prollems.
Both required 1 valve adjustment @ approx 60000kms, never needed another.
Currently driving a 08 1k with low kms on it (bout 45000), hope it will last a few yeers.
No valve adjustments needed, yet.

That's awesome man!
I guess my odometer won't be stuck at 99999. That's good news. Guess there's room for 1 extra digit without me knowing.

I hope you keep us updated on the mileage & maybe a documentation on what you replace.

Motor is bone stock. Changed timing chain around 100k ,gone through a lot of E.C.Uís ,wondering if maybe there is problem with 03/04 ecu. To get some of the punch back, I recently went 1 tooth down on counter. That also means from about 146k the mileage quote isnít perfect.
Love this bike. Works so well and fits me like a glove.
P.S I change the oil well before itís recommended

Timing chain suppose to last the life of the vehicle if you are using the right oil.

Is it hot where you live? Can't believe it's frying your ecu. Your rectifier ok?

You probably need a speedohealer.

Canít get better than 5100 Motul imo. Rectifier has been rewired due to stock plug overheating and melting.
As far as the little difference in spedo, I donít really care.
Life of vehicle?😬😬 isnít fair to say itís on its 2nd or 3rd?😁

70k miles is probably about as much as I've ridden total in the past sixteen years. I took a long break from riding in my twenties or it'd be a lot more. This bike had about 45k on it when I bought it, and I put close to 20 of those 26k miles that I've put on her in one year... The bike is my car.

Never thought about this until just now... My bike has about 7% speedo error with stock gearing (don't they all do that? It was the same with my k1 750), so I suppose that means that mileage is about 7% overstated...

Oem speedos, the mileage is right but speedo off. You can track speed & mileage using gps.

My wife had over 100k miles on her '93 GSXR-750 but has only put about 15k miles on the '94 before she bought her '00 R1 and put 54k miles on it before being a left-turn victim. I had the frame straightened by Computrack but never put the bike back together.

I put over 84k on my Harley, 54k on my Ducati ST2, 36k or so on the Ducati 748, and miles here and there on the other bikes. I've logged over 250k miles on motorcycles since 1993 with my best year being 26k miles in a single year. There is a chance my wife has actually logged more miles on motorcycles than me, but she's not sure since she eventually left a spedo cable broken after replacing it three times and got tired of buying new ones.

What impresses me the most is the miles you got on the Ducs! I had a 2010 streetfighter S that needed overhauled at 19k.
Even after I poured a ton of loot into it , it still only gave me problems.

I can do all my on maintenance on the Ducati bikes and used to write technical articles for a club magazine. The ST2 had some one-year only quirks, but the 748 was flawless. I think the only issue I had with that was when I used an aftermarket fuel filter that expanded like a balloon....and the guardrail I hit with with the bike. I bought a used and previously dropped Bimota DB-2 and had intentions of wearing the bike out until the starter went out on it. Then, we moved, I started two side businesses, and was still working my regular job and a side-job, so I don't have time for much of anything these days. One day I will get the Bimota back together. I had put about 3000 miles on it in two or three months before I parked it.
