    So, I've had the bike for coming 2.5 wonderful years and averaging 1500 miles per month. Mulling the reality the bike will probably at 75-80K miles in the next year or two depending if it goes to Alaska or not. I am really trying to figure out when I should be looking to sell off because it gets into "Bathtub" failure curve.

    I've had my F800 for just over 2 years - no problems, and I only replaced the original chain at 17000 miles!

    Hey Inmates,

    Please post your current mileage!

    I use my F800GS as a daily rider and have 29,000 miles on her. No major issues. Interested in hearing about issues with higher mileage bikes since thats where mines headed.

    And can anyone confirm that the cam chain tensioners need to be replaced somewhere around 50,000 miles? And perhaps if you can post the price you paid for that service.

    Thanks so much for any input!

    I think a good part of your questions will be answered here:

    D.I.Y. Cam Chain Replacement

    and otherwise if you want a price information you can always call your dealer :eek:)

    Maybe you can do a non-discriminatory "How many KMS do you have?"

    I feel sooo left out :cry

    I use mine for a commuter too and I'm at 31K. Starting to get a little nervous and wondering what sort of longevity I will get out of it. I just have my fuel tank replaced. I had a rocker leak early on and my fuel pump gasket failed within the first 600 miles, other than that, no problems.

    I spent most of my time on pavement with some offroad desert excursions, mostly trails and some deep sand.

    I hope I can get a lot more out of this bike since I still will be paying on it for a couple more years. Any thoughts from you higher mileage guys?

    2010 bought Dec 2009. 57K Miles on it. I use it daily as my commuter bike and put about 70 miles a day on it. Biggest expense so far was I had to replace the front rotors due to loose buttons. Also at that time I had to replace one of the front calibers because it was frozen and didn't float. Tech at dealer said that may have caused the rotors to go south. Just bought a battery for it, because I think my original one may be starting to go.

    Bought my bike Feburary this year, currently about 21,000 miles. I use it to commute (~75 miles round trip), but will retire next year so my milaege rate should go down.
