the odds of you wearing out a honda engine are slim, (undernormal conditions) have seen an 03rr with over 42000km and a VFR with over 82000km. you have better odds of wrecking the bike before the engine.
These things seem to last forever. I have 19,600 miles on my '06. when I went in for major maintenance at 16,000 miles, the valves were still within spec, had no adjustments required at all. Maintain it on schedule, you could see 100,000 miles on the motor.
250,000km or 114,000 miles on a race motor, (not the best choice for long distance). Google his name and you can find more info. The guy is a character. I mean, who would pick an R1 to ride around the world?
Hi all, apologies in advance for the negative 1st post but i have a 2003 RR which wouldn't start although fuel pump was ok etc just span really fast on the button but wouldn't fire. Turns out cylinders 1 and 4 had 40 psi and 2 and 3 20 psi so engine pretty well toast although was running fine...
