Re: how many miles does your blade have?

2002 954 with 10,121 original miles. Getting ready to be zero on the motor and tranny since they are being completely rebuilt. Plus I am going overboard on new OEM parts and aftermarket parts to make her my dream bike and the last bike I will hopefully ever have to buy.

I don't run a speedo but I would think mine must be up around there - it's not high mileage. Should be good for _at least_ 100,000 miles before needing any work on the engine. 200K shouldn't be any problem either.

Re: how many miles does your blade have?

10,255 miles on my 03 954.... that will be going up dramatically now that i own the bike. it sat unridden for 7 years before i bought it. well actually i got it from a guy who got it from a guy that let it sit in storage for 7 years. the guy i got it from had it for 3 month part of which was the end of winter and decided it was too much bike for his commuting needs. i really have no idea how or why someone would buy a bike n put less than a 2,000 miles a year on it in 3 years n then let it sit in storage with not a mile on the clocks for seven years?? i asked the guy because i figured maybe something happened to the original owner he bought it from before me n thats why it sat in storage so long but he told me the guy he bought it from was the original owner n was in good health but was an older gentleman and he just didnt ride it. anyway, im happy to have a low mile example of arguably the best babason blade. im looking forward to many many miles with good upkeep.

Re: how many miles does your blade have?

I have not had to do any work to the motor yet, my clutch is getting there however. That will b my prodgect over the winter. But i have had a massive amount of electrical issues. I see by reading the forums that its a pretty common issuse with the blades

I have over 43k on my 02. Just replaced the left shifter fork and took it out on the track on Monday. It's still going strong...

Re: how many miles does your blade have?

03, 954 with 5,100 miles. I picked it up two years ago with 1,492 miles. It kills me that I can't get out and ride more.

Re: how many miles does your blade have?

thats a nice find man! still blows me away tho. im not saying its the case here at all but if i were to find that bike with those miles on it i would be very suspicious that a new gauge from a wrecked bike had been put on or they can actually reprogram the miles to whatever they want with the right software on digital odometers, or it was unplugged n driven somehow or they musta drove it in reverse a long time!!! lol i guess if the bikes condition seems the part id be more on the believers side but id need to see a odometer report or carfax or somethin to be fully on board. just because like i said it just doesnt make any fricken sense why someone would buy a bike n just not ride it at all! lol i guess some people have more money than they know what to do with n this is the result! like i said man nice find. i dont know what ya paid for it but im guessing you got seriously a brand new bike for about half or less the original msrp

Fortunately or unfortunately depending on how you look at it some bikes only make it out on selected weekends. Little League, Soccer, or just to many bikes to ride interfere. I had one bike (Kaw 650 four) I put 16,000 miles in 5 months and another (Yamaha 250 twin) 1608 miles in 10 years. It's all in the cards.
