Evidently no one in the USA as I inquired about one last week and not a single crank had been sold nor stocked in the USA,........go figure.

I'm just under 70 hours and at 60 hours I had to reshim both intake valves as they were both loose, but exhaust valves were just fine and I don't think I've adjusted exhaust valves at all yet.

Compression is still well within spec and I don't want to tackle a more thorough tear down until I know the bike can sit for a couple of weeks waiting on whatever parts it may or may not need.

My guess is the crank will be just fine for 150 hours, just not sure who's going to be the first to prove it.

I will say keep an eye on rear wheel bearings and a better eye on the main pivot tapered bearings for the swing arm. With being a tapered design you should be repacking the grease and torquing every 20-30 hours as I've found it to be loose more then once now. If it gets too loose the swing arm shaft will then make contact with the hollow output shaft and that's no good not to mention the waggling rear end feeling it will induce.

Mine is at 113.4 hrs and I have only done the valve checks every 20 hrs - never had to adjust them and they're still well in spec, and of course I do the oil & filter changes every 10 hrs.
The bike still goes like a rocket and I'm very happy

Brommer you will need more than 1 oil filter kit for that much riding.

Cycle World shootout

I just started a thread on the five-bike Euro dual-sport shootout in the new Cycle World, and I'd appreciate reaction from BMW 450 owners to my summary. http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=502925

Very nice aux tank Motorfiets.
How did you plumb it to the existing tank?
Can we have another photo of the air intake side please?

Also, your frame looks polished, how did you achieve that?
