i was wondering how much miles can i get out of a zx-12 motor. a friend of mine with a 2k zx-9 blew him motor @ 21000 miles. he threw his 4th rod. the rod busted a hole in the block. this was a well serviced motor. i heard you can get about 18000 out of a kaw motor before it detonates. is this true?

hom much miles do you have on your bike?

just past 7100 and that is without five weeks in the prime of riding season due to deer impact repairs. honestly, it just now feels like it is getting broken in.
