The 200,000 mile sport bike

Ran across this, thought it was worthy of a share here: The 200,000-mile Sportbike

'05 Kawasaki ZR750-K (Z750S) / '98 KLF 300 4X4

Impressive reliability for any vehicle. Just shows that maintenance pays off.

71 y/o owner is the most important part. Give that bike to a kid, it's dead in seconds.

Re: The 200,000 mile sport bike

theres a shop in the Atl area that was in some mag. i read. its a service shop no bike sales so they dont try to pimp any brand, but anyways the owner had a sport kawi with over 250k and the motor hadnot been opened up sofar. basiclly the guy had 2 points that were leading to the high mile marker... dont pin it/red line it, and maintain the dam thing.

Then I'll never see that kind of mileage. If I can't pin it every now and then and bring it "not hold it" at red line, I may as well travel on a John Deere ride on mower.
