Hello Tinkerer,

I have read on other motoredbikes forums that some have gotten 6000 to 6500 miles out of a well maintained engine. Since the chinese engines have no replacable cylinder sleeves, well that means a new Jug, piston and head. But bang for the buck, thats not bad at all. I have 900 miles of hard ridden miles on mine and it is still purring.

....Thanks, quarkdude
