Total on bike 13,000 miles, over 10,000 this year (I bought the bike used a year ago). 2003 640 Adv. Not a single problem other than a loose wire in a connection that caused the bike to misfire for awhile and then die entirely. Was able to diagnose myself and has run smoothly ever since.

Around 15K, 5K with me on a 2000 Adv. If we're talking engine problems, none that I know of, although I have done a couple upgrades for problem areas.

Do I get a prize?

31,000 miles on my 99 LC4. Pulser coil, clutch cable and water pump seal are the only parts replaced other than normal services. I commute to work on it nearly everyday and take the mirrors off and do the family ride thing in our local deserts 2 or 3 times a month.

There is a LC4 in my town with 63,000 miles on the clock. I have no idea how reliable its been.

I truely use mine as a true DS bike. I hope KTM comes out with an affordable replacement soon.

Where's Jerome?

His website says he did a 75,000 click service in October; that's over 45,000 miles for the retro crowd.

Does he win the date with Loaded?

21,000 miles, 8,000 since I bought it. I just put a new clutch in and did the bearing swap even though the original looked fine. The only issue I have had is with the carb. The slide is plastic as is the female piece that is pressed into the carb. I guess the years of vibration and some grit that had gotten in there had taken their toll, but the parts were easily replaced and all is well
