Hi

I sold my 1000S 3 years ago after 6 years of ownership with 33,000km (20,500 miles) on the clock . It had done 3,300 km when I bought it.

Ownership was drama free, it only required the usual servicing and stuff everybody knows about:
camchain tensioner upgrade
hub bearings at 17,000km
chain at 24,000km
front wheel bearings at 25,000km

I had fitted:
a waterpump upgrade and a third fan with over-ride switch
decat midpipe
a Merc07 eprom - this was the earlier version that left the ebs in place.

The forks and steering head were overhauled not long before I sold it. There was a very small mark on one of the head bearing races and the fork seals were oil tight.

I had used an ohlins rear shock (big improvement) for the last 10,000km but swapped back to the standard sachs, which needed new bearings, before I sold the bike.

The camchain wasn't showing any appreciable stretch when I checked the valve clearances not long before I sold it. There had been minor movement in some of the clearances but nothing to warrant changing any shims.

All in all a great bike and I loved riding it. I only sold it because I was seduced by a 2013 F4RR.

Tony

Thanks for replying Hiya yes most I've seen are not high mileage like yours isn't as I think generally the mvs are used for for leisure use I'm not saying that people don't use them everyday but most age really haven't had s lot of miles that's why I was asking about higher miles just to get an idea

Cam chain tensioner, water pump, rear hub, and you can achieve 3x that mileage or more!
You will consume a clutch, chain and sprockets, front wheel bearings, nearly all relays, fuel fittings and internal hose, handlebar micro switches, and bulbs.
No big deal really.

F4 750: EVO2 engine, CNC Mitchs Hub, CNC water pump, FBF clip ons, Uprated chain tensioner, PCIII, Ceramic headers, RG3s, Talon 520 conversion, Oro wheels, +40,000miles and counting.......
