Mine reached 24,000 miles before I sold it last year. I even filled it up with river water on one occasion and after I changed the oil a couple of times she took me another couple of thousand miles to Magadan without a hiccup! Awesome.

Nice to hear that I can look forward to at least a couple more years out of my 2012.
I have 12000km in one year, and have only done regular scheduled maintenance.

Hello Drater,

That is incredible!!!

Where do you ride that you racked up that kind of mileage???

I am out of Thousand Oaks and have ridden in the hills above Santa Barbara once...do you know if the trail is open that goes to Solvang???

Thanks

Hello,

The maps I am looking at are sketchy on these trails...could I tag along on one of your rides to learn the trails???

Hello Drater,

Unfortunately I cannot get off during the week.

Do you have the day after thanksgiving off?

Thanks,
Ken

Certainly I didn't think it was much but mine sits at 15k, with no real farkles and a few good beatings. Only cosmetic things broke/plus a few cracks in the instrument panel that are now sealed up with silicone.

WRX with 29,000 klm of every type of riding, no work done, just oil, oil filters, tyres, chain and sprockets and air filter.

Was at the local dealer yesterday getting some filters and asked about the 40,000klm valve clearance check and a shim kit. He said it's very unlikely I'll need to shim it, but should check as recommended, then buy shims if needed. Does this sound right to those that have already been there?

Heard "Big Dog" was a little over 49K last month. Never heard of one being as high as drater's though... eeek

Mark at "Big Dog Adventures" checked his at 18,200 miles, (roughly same kilometers as yours), and his did need a little tweak. Google his site, and scroll down through his "WR" build/maintenance blog. He has pictures of his experience with re-shimming the valves on his WR250R.

Did it fail, or was it preventative maintenance?
Thank you for the knowledge thumb

you guys are making me laugh, here is some milage to talk about, 08 wr250r bought brand new and i have mostly dirt miles on it, im at 76,000 mi. ha! ha! it makes me laugh that this bike is still running after i have just rode it in the ground. it takes a licking and keeps on ticking.

three swing arms, piston, two camchains, seat, eight pairs of bars, shocks redone many times, new rims others cracked, plastics, three pairs of foot pegs, four shift levers, five chains, i don't know how many sprockets.

im about ready to do another cam chain and may be the piston. maybe i will shoot for 100.000 miles.

thanks, drater.

Still curious, same question; Did your chain(s) fail, or merely replaced as preventative maintenance? If it failed, was there any collateral damage?
Very curious to hear your reply. Heard a lot about your marathon bike bow

I am at 26,000 miles. My build day is 12/07. Just had the first valve adjustment. Wondering when I will need to refresh the piston and rings.....
