I was shocked when my crank bearings went at 38k miles
it was only my 3rd track day ever and 90% of the miles were street miles
I though I was taking care of my motor
breaking it it on dino oil and switching to full synthetic at about 6k miles
and changing the oil ever 3k miles
I used regular honda oil for the break in and switched to repsol 10-40 full syn and stuck with that the whole time

computer controlled precision machining is the reason why these engines can last so long with minimal wear/loss

the days were you had to perform extended break in procedures are pretty much over, by the first hundred miles or so the engine has basically settled in and is ready for the real stuff

Just an FYI.. a rev limiter is NOT the engines limit of revs, it can keep on climbing. The limiter is there to keep you from you from doing just that. Engines last forever if you take proper care of them.

You won't see it much here in the states, but in 3rd world countries where most cars are imported used cars (like my home country of Dominican Republic) you'll find that a taxi with 500,000 + miles is not a big deal.

Just keep up with the maintenance. Besides its a Honda shouldn't that be peace of mind.

not doubting you, but why do people say that a track bike's engine should typically get rebuilt after a couple seasons?

It's awesome to know that an abused (well, not "abused", but a hard-ridden) bike with track days under its belt still runs like new.

I think this is all subjective to how the maintenance intervals are executed and how how the bike have been operated.

Bikes last as long as they stay up on two wheels, which usually isn't very long :)

My 09 has 24,000 before I got rid of it. My 07 has 23,000 on it. Neither bike felt like they had more than 10,000 on it at all. The engine itself is probably good to last over 150,000 miles with normal use.

30k then the engine will implode.

But it depends on the maintenance.

Lightbulb depends on how you treat the bike & your annual mileage

I figure with such a high revving engine it can't last as long as a car, like 100,000.

Jw cause Im buying a used bike and dont want to buy something that will on last another 10,000 miles.
it's not even really 'high-revving' oem for a 600. the limiter could be raised to 16k w/out any real additional stress to the motor. so it's actually being ridden gently if revved to redline & shifting to next gear @ 15k

you do your part w/regular oil changes, dinosaur or synthetic & use quality fuel. keep that air filter up to date too & the engine will probably out last your interest & possibly your life depending on how many miles you log a year. ie i've seen 03-06 6rr w/over 250k miles more than a few times.
all the riders have done is regular maintenance & ridden them like any sport bike should be ridden. revved to near red-line & shifted to next gear.
most valve checks revealed no need for adjustment to well beyond 100k miles w/most of these bikes too. so next time you see a high mileage bike ask what they've done & about the valves. the two answers will also tell you more about how well engineered these bikes are now days. most brands too, not just honda.


the 07/08 has been their best motor released to date
my race/street bike can rev to 16.5k & i've put over 10k track only already, w/about 10-12k street miles mostly canyon/coastal/mountain miles. no real commuting or running errands, few freeway miles just to get to back-roads.
engine seem to be making best power right now. so am thinking i should dyno again & see if it's really improved or not. takes a bit to break-in good enough for maximum power output over the life of an engine. most tuners say that motors make their best horsepower from 15k-65-80k miles. this is mild or no port job, shaving head minimal amount; if done @ all, & copper/metal gasket. but oem gasket is good enough

keep the motor oem unless you're trying to race some 600cc open superbike class, then it'd be worth cracking the block, otherwise the oem motors are more than adequate for any spirited riding or racing.



how many miles do you ride a year?

Whoa that's unreal.

I kid I kid..... The mentality here in Toronto is anything over 30,000km is high millage. Stupid I know but that's how the market is. Posers don't ride much so many low km bikes here.

To the op it highly depends on your maintenance.

I'm really paranoid about putting miles on my bike or car. I average less than 4k/yr on my accord, and since march, 2.4k on my bike.
Too bad no one in ny wants to ride...

My 09 CBR bought new now has 38K km's (around 26K miles) and is running perfectly well. I am not the most vigilant when it comes maintenance and have missed oil changes but this seems to have very little effect on the engine as it pulls perfectly well when compared to some buddies 08 and 07 RR that have a third of the mileage on them.

This is not just for the engine but most other components as well and the bike gets a mix of city, mountain and track riding.

The only issue is that now that it has crossed the 20K km's point its resale value drops considerably as people are used to finding used bikes that are older than mine in age but have one third of the mileage on them.

It should outlast the period of u owning it... i bought my 07 with 1900 miles on it, it now has about 11,000 and runs the same as the day i bought it...
Lol it won't outlast the length you own it all the time cause nobody is gonna buy it with 50k miles on it
