Good to know

I figured after all those practice laps and racing on the track if something was going to happened it would have happened already.

To be honest I have not tried yet, I will be okay where I am going today but it is something I will have to do. It should be no problem, all they want is money.

It's definitely more duriable than a HT motor. The motor its self can probably get well over 10k as long as you use the proper amount of 2 cycle oil in the gas. The only fault I see in most of the guys here is the clutch issue. I only problem I had was a clutch clip that I replace once. I'm think about swapping mine out to a 3 shoe. I have around 4-5k (hard miles) on mine only and its running better now than when it was new.

"I'm think about swapping mine out to a 3 shoe" you'll love the improvements, that is the way to go Easy Rider... I think they'll last more than 10K... but you have to watch it and take care of it...looking at the parts it is like a swiss watch very precise...

The reason I limited my number to 10k was we ride our bike about 80% of the time off road and beat the living day lights out of our bikes.
I'm sure if you limit it to road use only with a 36-44 tooth sprocket, one should get 50k+ mile on one of these motors since it has a double ring on the piston.
