What should i do?

Well guys... here is an interesting situation and some questions:

I have just about wracked up 50,000kms on the 910R which i bought little over a year ago with 17,000kms on the clock for NZ$17k (thats about US$11k at todays exchange rate). Many more KMs than I thought i would do on it... In the time i have owned it, i have performed fairly regular standard servicing (keeping "mostly" to the km service periods - they come around pretty quick), replaced the rear hub and head stock bearings, added various bits of CF (hugger, chain guards, key surround, etc), replaced the PSU, and added steering dampner, an arrow shorty and a PCIII.

The couple of things i am about todo (and just about have enough saved in the bike account): custom mid pipe (to make the arrow sit correctly) and custom PCIII map... Then: more cf, more other bits, more servicing, MORE TYRES!

Im starting to think.....
  • Will i add another 30+k in the next year? (what is the impact $$ wise here? is it going to get more MORE MORE expenisive?)
  • When do i need a engine rebuild?
  • Is it time to move the 910R to a "special day bike"/"track bike" and get something else to spread the KM load over to?
  • God forbid, do i sell it and get something else? (NO!)
  • Do i just follow KiwiDoc and keep on going?...
I guess fellow members can see where i am at here? Just wanting a sounding board from others on their thoughts.

Also, the bike is going really well at the moment.. (I pause to wonder what is going to go wrong now....)

Any feedback is very welcome!

Cheers, Simon

Get a loan and a new brute. Keep the old for a track bike. You only live once, what better to get a loan for.

Probably plenty less than you think, me ol' buddy. I'd send him a PM, just to find out.
Yes, I was being serious.

Keep Riding

You don't need another bike. Keep riding this one and adding the miles.

hmmmm interesting challenge Gremmin - you could always buy my 750s as you're day to day runner and keep the 910r for track days?

I'll then buy replacement Brute
