Current Mileage/Odometer Reading

So, I've had the bike for coming 2.5 wonderful years and averaging 1500 miles per month. Mulling the reality the bike will probably at 75-80K miles in the next year or two depending if it goes to Alaska or not. I am really trying to figure out when I should be looking to sell off because it gets into "Bathtub" failure curve.

What is your current odometer reading?

I've had my F800 for just over 2 years - no problems, and I only replaced the original chain at 17000 miles!

Question How many miles do you have?

Hey Inmates,

Please post your current mileage!

I use my F800GS as a daily rider and have 29,000 miles on her. No major issues. Interested in hearing about issues with higher mileage bikes since thats where mines headed.

And can anyone confirm that the cam chain tensioners need to be replaced somewhere around 50,000 miles? And perhaps if you can post the price you paid for that service.

Thanks so much for any input!

I think a good part of your questions will be answered here:

D.I.Y. Cam Chain Replacement

and otherwise if you want a price information you can always call your dealer :o)

Maybe you can do a non-discriminatory "How many KMS do you have?"

I feel sooo left out

Non-discriminatory, discriminatory to others, I suppose there could be KM's in parenthesis afterwords!! LOL

I use mine for a commuter too and I'm at 31K. Starting to get a little nervous and wondering what sort of longevity I will get out of it. I just have my fuel tank replaced. I had a rocker leak early on and my fuel pump gasket failed within the first 600 miles, other than that, no problems.

I spent most of my time on pavement with some offroad desert excursions, mostly trails and some deep sand.

I hope I can get a lot more out of this bike since I still will be paying on it for a couple more years. Any thoughts from you higher mileage guys?
