Default Re: About how many miles will a well-maintained 80cc engine last?

Same engine since 2010. No clue how many miles. Lots. Runs like it was just broken in. Even hauls my 200 lb. + butt up slight hills without me pedaling.
Now, I did quite a bit of work on it in the beginning: greasing, port matching, tuning, aligning, etc. The less hard they have to work (like anything else) the longer they'll last, I figure. I've heard some on the forum say they had over 10K on theirs.
