Lockjaw That is interesting reading. And at least one fairly specific itemized maintenance breakdown with no mention of valve adjustment. Over 50K miles. Maybe someone called it out later. Short attention span. But that would intrigue me (and make me worry less about mine).

Back2Kawi,
I'm at 78,000 +. On a mostly stock 1987! Spring damped balancer weights included!

OkiePokie man, if that's true, that's impressive! Someone get ahold of this guy and get him to tell us the secret to making a KLR last that long, not that durability of the KLR is in question!

CheapBassTurd Even if it's 72k, not shabby for a Gen 2 already.
That scooter doesn't sit around much.

If he's a daily commuter and rides gentle those
numbers could well be right.

James M Wonder if he's done the doo!

subvetssn I'm curious to know what, if any, mods he's done to his bike.

But a high mileage rider like that probably doesn't have any time or interest to post on the internet. LOL.
