22 thousand miles , 13 k on my 250 and almost 10 k on my 2012 650 , I commute 80 miles a day , and I rode under a hurricane alert , a few weeks ago , I ride under scorching heat and humidity ATGATT but cold does get the best of me , I did find that a good thermal T-shirt (the ones people use for fishing ) makes a BIG difference when ridding on colder weather.

I forgot to say that this is in a little over a year time.

Also trying to get an estimate on how long these engines will last...
Did everyone miss this part? Only a few of you actually have an 03/04 636 or RR

1st 04 6rr engine was around 32k on the odo before it blew. And that was because of a hole in the air filter and a lot of dirt in the air where I lived. It ran pretty much perfect up until that, and it could have been rebuilt, I just didn't want to hone the walls, get new bearings, etc etc.

2nd 04 6rr engine I picked up with somewhere around 14k miles on it, I've put another 1500-2k miles on it in the last month or so.

I think if you do the right maintenance on these things, keep on top of checking your compression, valve seating and gaps these motors would turn 60-100k no problem.

Obviously. Looking at which subforum you're in and reading the entire OP seems to be too difficult a task for some.

Because I looked, and also think the subject is dumb, that's why I didn't post my miles. I don't get why so many people expect a motorcycle engine to give out and are therefore thrilled if they break 10,000 miles. Do car forums have mileage threads? I doubt it. I don't belong to any of them, so I'm just assuming.

Most do, most are a badge of honor thing since *most* car forums are for cars that are no where near daily driven by 99% of the owners. But sometimes it's a "if I buy this XXX with 150k miles can I expect to replace the engine immediately or am I fine for a while".

It's all about the maintenance on any engine though. There are a few honda s2000's that are over 400-500k miles without any major work. And I've also seen a thread where some dumbshit kid who had no idea that you put it vehicle in the highest gear possible if you're sitting on the highway blow his motor at 70k-80k miles because he redlined the motor for that long. I'm surprised it lasted that many miles though, lol.
