I found this thread very interesting. There is no mention of numbers for the the LC4E model or the SCX models.

I was trying to establish the total number of 640 LC4 engines that are being operated in the USA. Once we establish the total number, it makes sense to look at long term reliability and then establish a long term maintenance/replacement schedule based on total accumulated mileage.

The owners manual has some glaring omissions in their suggested list of scheduled maintenance.
It strikes me that many of the problems with our bikes have to do with lubrication and greasing issues or cooling problems.
The cylinder head/valve gear and clutch are also problematic.

Since Iam coming up on 20Kmiles on my bike and am planning another 20K out of country this will be a labor of love.

Anyone want to take a stab at the total number of engines in the USA?
