NOOOOOOO!! What a downer in the morning.

Maintenance is not that bad if he does it himself. Does he have chain lube? Can you gap his valves so he doesn't kill that poor thing? How about oil changes? A bike can be neglected in other areas for a short time, but the oil and valves will kill a bike in a hurry. Then he will be even further up the creek when his paddle breaks.

I have a brother-in-law that doesn't do any maintenence on any of his vehicles. I've tried and tried to explain the need for preventitive maintenence but he doesn't ever do any. What me off is he has an 01 Expedition, he never(I swear) changed the oil since he bought it in 2005(with 41,000 miles). It now as 270K and it runs good. It has a load of other problems, but the motor runs fine. I just shake my head.

That engine has to be a powder keg ready to explode. That's crazy.

I had an 84 Honda Civic that I purchased used back in the 90's. An oil port on the cam became blocked and the cam ended up shearing at about 120,000 miles. I did preventative maintenance on it, but not so sure the guy before me did. That stuff does happen. The engine was cratered, ended up calling the salvage yard and telling them to take it away.
