Average mileage ??Before major engine work needed?

I recently purchased a really nice 1998 KLR 650. It has been meticuousley maintained and well cared for. The engine runs excellent and seems to have plenty of power. The mileage is 15,000 and I was wondering how many miles these engines are usually good for before needing major repairs. Thanks for your time.

'Bout 15,001 they come apart.

J/K, mine has 64K and it's going strong.
