My Lovely red is nearly at 170k miles


Looks like almost 170k miles is enough for a coil stick to fail cause her #4 died today.

Wow! 170k miles! Too bad that POS prius we had didn't last that long. It went tits up at 70k miles and was basically unrepairable. Toyota should talk to Kawi!

Give that man a fucking trophy and a weeks vacation on the house....... When you can could you ball park maintenance and repairs..Like oil changes tires,valve adjustments.I remember some guy put like 200 k on a cbr 900 and the twin spar frame cracked in half..

Very impressive. Both my '04 ZX10's keep rolling with no issues at all. But an absolute fraction of the miles you have....

Thanks everyone ! This has been and still is one hell of an awesome machine. The adventures keep going and the smiles are never ending. My Red actually left me stranded at one of my bros houses a few weeks ago. Strange problem. She started and ran perfectly from my house in the high desert all the way to Orange county a good 80 mile one way trip. When i got to OC every time i hit the start button all the power cut out. I was positive it was the starter solenoid failing with all the miles of use. After swapping another solenoid in the same problem happened. So i checked the voltage. 12.5 with the ignition on . But as soon as i hit the start button the voltage drops to 0.5 volts. Battery shorted out. So swapped the battery and put the old solenoid back in and she is good to go

Here it is, Friday morning after arriving at work.



Last week, I took the clutch apart & check the friction pads & springs to see if they need to be replaced. Everything was well within specs, no problems at all.

Still a bit behind Lee, but with normal maintenance, it should see 200K easily.
