My bike has rode ... miles/km!

Post by Chiya » Tue Mar 07, 2017 7:32 am

Hello XJ members!

I am really curious to know which xj has rode the most miles/km's. Mine has run 92300 km's which I believe is a lot. I'd like to see if there is a certain averaged mileage/km's where the bikes have their common issues. And of course to see who on XJRider has run the most mileage/km's!

My XJ's history since I own the bike:

79xxx new air&oil filter, oil flush, adjusted the valve clearances, carb cleaning/synchronization, new chain and sprocket set, new front tire.
89xxx new rear tire, dash bulb needs replacing
92xxx Needs new brake pads, brake disc, sump gasket, oil cooler is sweating and needs yet another carb cleaning/synchro/job, and oil is leaking from the airbox bleeder valve and the airbox airfilter hole.

Congrats on the miles. When did you buy it? How many miles did it have then?

I'll add mine to the list. I bought it in Jan 2014 with 13k miles on it, now the mileage is over 52k + miles (83,xxx km), pretty much reliable for the most part. I ride it most every day on my 30 mile rural commute to work. Here's my mileage track page that I use to keep track of scheduled maintenance and repairs, etc. That's a pretty useful site and it's free too.

Hi Tony!

We're close to each other with regard to the milage, I got it in dec-2015 but started riding it in feb-2016 it had 78xxx km's when I bought it. I use it for daily commuting 62 km's back and forth. By the way, mileage track website is very nice. A couple of days ago I downloaded Fuelio android app (created by Sygic). Also free

Nice :) I bet I can get to that soon since my dial is going to reset at 99.999 back to 00000 :)
