I was just wondering how many miles a sport bike can go for? Can it go up to 200,000 miles like a car?

its all about the maintenance... keep up on EVERYTHING and it will go for a long long time... im at 30K on my RR right now and it still runs perfect. my first bike 7 years ago was an old gsxr and it had 70K on the clock when i sold it to a friend of mine who still has it today and it still runs good.

so whats the extent... i dont know... but if you take care of it, it will take care of you

bikes will either be crashed or sold for the latest greatest before you get to 100k. touring bikes see that kind of mileage, not sportbikes but not because they can't get that much mileage on them.

I've seen plenty of sportbikes with over 100k and still going strong. Most of them are Honda's in fact. I think how long a bike lives depends on a few factors:
1. luck - getting one that was put together perfectly at the factory
2. how it's ridden - I think almost everyone will agree that a bike that is ridden hard will die sooner than one that has an easy life.
3. maintenance - enough said

A guy at my work has a GSXR1000 with 178,000 miles on it. The bike runs perfectly and still looks sharp.

If you take care of it properly it should go at least 100,000 miles, even if you thrash it in the canyons and on the occasional track day.

Does he ever add oil in his GSXR? How is the power on it does it still have good torque?

if its a honda they go till you wreck them and sometimes longer...
the reason you dont see a ton of bikes going that high isnt because they arent capable its because they are wrecked most likely. not a lot of guys hold on to the same bike for years and years and years.... and usually when they sell an older bike its to some kid who doesnt have a ton of money and then he wrecks it... its just the way things are

I am really amazed that the miles that you all have seen on sport-bikes. I personally NEVER seen anything more than 40k and that was on my 93 F2 I had. Wow I would love to see and ride a bike with that kind of miles and see If It really does run that good.. That Is cool thanks for posting this thread. :rocker:

I Have seen 45,650 on a Fz6 and 287,000 on a gold wing. But like everyone said they will be traded or wrecked before they approach high numbers

The bike does not burn any oil nor does it leak any oil. It looks really clean, a lot better than a lot of bikes with no where near that many miles on it.

The bike is still really fast. I rode it and it is still really fast.

I've always have been of the opinion that motorcycles are more reliable than cars. My old {and very abused} 50,000+ mile CBR600 F1 never left me stranded.

I am a firm believer that if you take care of it, it will take care of you.
Im willing to say I could ride my CT70 from New York, to California with only stops for gas. If you really keep up on it, it will last. Bikes dont seem as disposable as cars do.

Another myth. Sportbikes can and will take a surprising amount of abuse.

I know of friends a R6 that has 20,000 miles on it right now. It's been pissed on, abused, tracked, dropped, totalled, raped and God knows what else. it's been serviced, but only sporadically.

It dynoed at 106rwhp couple of weeks ago. :rocker:
