    I have done about 100 miles on mine since I put a Wiseco piston in and turned it into a scrambler a couple of years ago.
    Engine should be run in by now I reckon.
    Originally had 10000 miles on the clock.

    Re: High Miles Poll

    mine had around 40,000 miles on it when i bought it i've put at least another 10,000 on it since then but hard to be too accurate as i've had 3 different speedos on in the last couple of years, but up to around 50,000 miles now ,
    since i've owned it the oil pump has failed and been replaced, top end rebuilt with new camshaft, cam bearings, followers, valve seals and had a rebore

    Re: High Miles Poll

    Mine turned past 44k miles yesterday. A couple of weeks ago the Yamaha dealer said it was a nice Dominator, you don't see many around any more. If I had a pound for every time someone has said that to me I could buy a new spark plug! A number of people have said the same thing though....

    The MOT tester the other day said it was running nice. He said just watch the head and change the oil often, I could buy another plug for the number of people who said that one but then he annoyed me when he said just bin it when it goes wrong Piss off! me and this bike have been through a lot. France, Wales, Snow. rain and lots of fun.

    Hopefully it will last a while longer yet.

    I did see an FX650 with 68000 on it, albeit it was in a breakers yard because a car had U turned on it. So it must have been running when the crash happened.....

    Mine was bought with 30,000km on it if i remember right but it had a top end rebuild not long before i had it. I put 15,000 hard miles on it and just done a top end rebuild and done 2000 mile since then so the bottom end has done about 40,000 miles

    Re: High Miles Poll

    I'm kind of banking on 55000 - 60000 between rebuilds.
    I change the oil every 1000 and cruise the motorway at 60MPH so hopefully they'll last that long.
