I was curious who has the most track only miles on a bike? Also what is to be expected as far as mileage goes? the reason I ask is because the track bike I might be buying has about 4000 track miles on it because the owner is a track day instructor for the novice group of STT. He says never any problems with it and that it sounds great. He also said it's burning no oil. Should I be concerned?

Yeah if he is a novice instructor those are easy miles. I have 5k track and race miles on my 636 with no problems yet. My Sv had about 14k on the motor when I blew the transmission, it took a day to drop it and tear it down and two days to put it back together with a new transmission.

However track miles push the price down, if the street price is $5k for a bike, a track bike price will be more like $4k.

For the racers: how periodically do you rebuild/valve adjust your engines? Or do you just wait till something breaks.
