These things are almost bullet proof. With the proper maintenance you could see 100,000 +. Now with that being said it is hard to say because MOST bikes are crashed, stolen , or not taken care of in the proper way to ever see 35,000 or so. I ride my 750 like the devil was after me and am over 20,xxx with no major issues

+1 on all that,

My bud has a 97 gsxr with 110,000+ on it and he still drives the crap out of it.

24,000 on a 600 and it doesn't use any oil at all. So you shouldn't have any trouble with your 1000 for MANY miles to come.

The bottom line is it just depends on how it was maintained. Properly maintained, the mileage is irrelevant, at least in the range you're looking at. But improperly maintained, the mileage is ALSO irrelevant. I'd buy my bike with 62,000 miles on it before I'd buy a thrashed, ill maintained one with 1,500 miles on it.

The single, best test you can do to judge the health of any engine (except two-strokes) is to have someone start it in the morning, when it's cold and hadn't been run yet for the day. If the motor is healthy, it shouldn't blow any smoke. If you get a puff of white or blue smoke coming out immediately on startup (not condensation steam, which is normal) then there is some type of wear issue going on.

Manufacturer says these bikes (when properly maintained) are built to survive 65,000 miles in a normal life span. As you see above though they can go for much longer with proper maintenance and love, that's just the manufacturer's modest estimate. Though as Mr Dangles so aptly put it, they so often wrecked, stolen, or improperly maintained and thus you'll get different answers from different people.

As everyone has said how you maintain it, plus how hard you ride it will effect how long it will last. If you have cared for yours and not thrashed the life out of it you have a long way to go!

79,264 miles. Bought brand new 5/31/2006. Mostly street miles but 11 trackdays in the last year and a half. Someone said there's somebody here with 100k on their K6. That's what I came back to look for.:thumbup:
