Longevity is a crap shoot. If you get a good bike, it will last a long time. If you get a cheap bike, it wont make a difference what you do.
Ignore this mouthbreather. He picked up a bike that had done 3k in 4 years with no service history lol. All C50's cost the same when new.
Assuming yours has been semi well maintained prior to your ownership you have nothing to worry about, just with any ICE, change oil regularly

We all have opinions, take a little from everyone and decide for yourself. I side with Skrapiron that some of the C50's were not the best and my bike had a good semi synthetic oil and the timing chains failed. Oil quality or frequency of changes was not a factor in my timing chains failure. They should last the life of the bike, certainly 50,000 miles with normal service and dino oil.
