PostSubject: How many miles do you have on your WR250R/X ???   Sat May 14, 2011 2:43 pm

I just bought a 2008 WR250X with 2,100 miles on it,and I was just wondering how many miles should I expect to get out of a bike like this over it's lifespan? (With Proper Maintenance)
Ive seen other street and sport bikes with 80,000 plus miles on them.

Just about at 24,000 miles on my '08. Checked the valves for the first time a few days ago and the exhaust side was a little tight, first time I've seen the inside of the motor. Everything still looked new to me. Otherwise, just oil, filters, and riding. If I decide to keep it past this year (when it will have ~40k if my riding habits hold up) I'll probably shoot for 100k miles on it just to see.

My X is now at 11,200 miles. 12k miles service due probably end June/beginning July. I changed front brake pads at around 10,500 miles. Chain/sprockets still seem pretty good. Spokes are not shiny any more. A bit of rust forming at weld joints around rear frame - very superficial & nothing a drop of Hammerite can't solve. Apart from regular oil changes & tyres, bike runs the same as when I bought it at 2,000 miles in March 2010. I love far Eastern engineering - I own a Japanese bike & Korean car bow

How long did your chain/sprockets last, or are you still on originals???

God no. My stock sprocket and chain were shot at about 6000 miles, but I ride a lot in the dirt too and most of that was in winter (salty roads here not helping). Swapped to an RK X-ring chain with 13/46 and later a 14T steel sprocket, got about 10k out of that set before I pre-emptively replaced them for a road trip with the same. Current chain and sprocket has about 8000 miles on it, I'd say its about halfway worn. I do finally have to replace my brake pads (still on originals, I'm easy on brakes). Have replaced the brake fluid and coolant too.

Just over 500 at this point. Very happy They don't add up too quickly when doing 20-30 miles a weekend of just single track. Very happy

9000. Original chain, original brakes, etc etc. Oil changes and air filter lubing is the only maintenance I've had to do.... Other than a few sets of fork seals.... budah

I've got almost 6200 miles on mine. Most of it in dirt. However, I have started using it to commute and I leave in 2 weeks on a 2000+ mile road trip. So my mileage will significantly increase in the near future.

And that's not even necessary. Usually just need to clean them properly. I'm at 16k miles on mine, fork seals started leaking at 12k, all I did was pull the fork dust seals down and use a thin piece of plastic(I cut up a 2 liter bottle) to clean the fork oil seals and the dust seals, slide the dust seals back in to the fork and back to new.... deal



I think I've posted this before somewhere?

Always try that first. Problem is that I ride it like a motocross bike. Actually blow the seals. Thanks though.

That's impressive. So far I think your leading the pack. As far as I've seen anyway.

3 miles.

I'm anxiously awaiting the arrival of my tag, registration, and title. I put three miles on it blasting up and down the street because I got sick of staring at the bike in the garage not knowing what it could do.

Just rounded 3500 hard, daily-driven, weekend-romping miles this morning. And plan on many more...
