About 2800, now buy mine.

I agree with dbuck. It depends on the bike and how it was maintained. I have a friend with an 08 zx10r with 22k miles and zero problems. Gas tires and oil is all it's needed.

My "Ninja 250" has about 4,400; mostly all track day miles.

I've seen TLR's and others with 30K plus.

Take care of your stuff and it's no problem.

I've also had motards with less than 3K explode...twice.
