Interesting write up about the new seals and shafts lasting 50,000 miles. That has not been my experience. I would say 20,000 would be a safe number. The cooling system has been flushed on my bike numerous times. I did get 15,000 miles out of one before it went. Close enough to 20K. Now I just replace them every valve check, do the bearing every other change. Its a pretty quick procedure when you dont have to do the bearings. Sure, its over kill, but changing a failed one out in a campground in the sticks isnt too fun, especially when it takes a couple of days to track down new oil and coolant.
