Re: High mileage
Nikasil cylinder lining, big oil pump, water cooing, almost 4 litres of oil and generous sized big ends and mains. This engine is derived from the time-proven K100 and they do colossal miles, they also had hard chromed crankshaft journals. Keep the oil and air clean and the coolant replaced and tha engine will last past any other motorcycle engine because it isn't over stressed.
