You guys do realize that this is a 2 year old thread, right? Soon after reaching the 100k threshold, the engine developed a litany of issues and the op stepped it out for another low mileage one?

They are disposable bikes. Most do not make it anywhere close to 100k miles. The vast majority are done by 75k miles. A handful are dead by 35k. This is the first one I actually know about hitting 100k without major problems getting there. Maybe luck of the draw, maybe he is exceptionally light on the throttle.

FX4 Congrats, luck of the draw. You got a good one.

I figured I could, in theory, have my original motor rebuilt, but that would've cost me more, probably. So I'm still racking up the miles.

Rebuilding your worn engine would have cost double that, for parts only. Labour would have added another $1200 or more. You did well to just swap the motors.

bbqjoe Congrats, but yeah, you cheated.

alarmguy Yes, I have posted many UOAs from the bikes below on Bob in the Oil Guy and a VOA of the oil I currently use.

I too always used simple oil and change around the same mileage.
