Re: Who has the most miles on there fireblade

I'm at 69000 miles on my 92 (had it since 56000), but 4000 miles ago I did a overhaul with oversized pistons, new rings, new main and connecting rod big bearings. It had no symptoms of wear before (knocking or other noises), and the valve clearances have always stayed in spec. Only thing to go wrong is the fuel pump quit.

Re: Who has the most miles on there fireblade

Just my experiences...On the down side I had wheel bearing start to go at that mileage on my rr-w but that was possibly exaggerated by 3 winters. Head bearing possibly too. The rear shock will be useless at that mileage if its still original. Clutch too depending on how its been abused.

On the plus side, if the motors had regular oil changes with quality oil it should go on for ever and a day, and there is Honda'a build quality so if looked after it will look for a long long time!

I really love my 929, hope you do, so give it some tlc and it will be good for some years to come!

Re: Who has the most miles on there fireblade

Im on 20k on the 954RR, 2k on the Hornet and 20.5K on the VFR.

Bikes can go on forever*, as long as they recieve the TLC they need.

*Figure of speech but i've seen some very high mileage e.g. 70-90k

Re: Who has the most miles on there fireblade

Should go 100k easy. I bought a CBR 1100xx Blackbird a couple of years ago and joined a forum. There was a mileage thread and a guy in the UK had 400k miles on his Blackbird. He was a courier so the Bird was how he made his living.

Re: Who has the most miles on there fireblade

There is a guy in MN that has a 600F2 that has 300 to 400,000 miles; the odo has rolled over several times. It doesn't matter if it is a car or a motorcycle; it is a Honda.

True, but they also need a caring and loving owner...

Re: Who has the most miles on there fireblade

I have over 101,000K. miles on my '02 954, purchased new. Live on eastern edge of LA basin, ride all year/75 mile commute to ONT airport, plus one 4K tour yearly. Speed sensor, steering stem bearings, wheel bearings, flapper/EGCV servo motor, bushings on EGCV have been replaced. Full synthetic motor oil typical, Mobil One preferred (auto variety). Looking at cam chain plus tensioner next. I really love this bike and I've had many.

Re: Who has the most miles on there fireblade

What mileage should I change the cam chain on my 03 954 ? I've heard they have problems, but I just think they are naturally loud. I have 14k miles on my blade now. I change the oil frequently and take care of other things when needed.

The cam chain tensioner will go long before the chain will.
