50k+ if well maintained.....can go out in as little as 15k-20k miles. all depends on how you treat the bike, and how well you maintain it.

That bike probably won't last much longer. 40K is a bit much. I had one go at 26K and another go at just before 50K. I changed the oil every 1000-1500 miles too. I replaced the rear tire and the oil at the same time. The chances that someone rode 40K miles on a bike, also knew how to ride and rode the out of it.

you can normally tell when a bike has been ridden hard. takes a little while to start, when you rev it it has some hang time. that normally means it has real low compression thats why it revs for awhile. if the front end shakes on it or vibrates a little you know that it was wheelied a few too many times and the front barings are going out from hard landings, plus chances are the motor will burn up soon cause of the wheelies. but if everything checks out good and it rides strong maybe it was well kept and worth the buy.

929's last a long time. 40k isn't much at all.

That is the reason why your bike is dead. You rode the t out of it. A tire at every 1500 miles?????? If the motor is not clanking and there are no leaks or minor seal leaks, it is good to buy. There are peep's that used bike for transportation and others for recs or pleasure.

I had over 60K on my superhawk and I rode the snot out of that thing. It ran great when i sold it and the new buyer loved it. I changed the oil every 3K or two track days. I rode it on the track for about two years and I say again, beat the out of it.

If it's a good price, have a shop check it out, and if it's good, go for it. It's a honda!
