This ? sounds very familiar....

from what I've been told it's all about how well you take care of the bike, much like a car if you take good care of it then it will last....if you don't....well it won't.

i rode my VTR1000, v-twin, for over 60K miles and that included two years of track days. It ran great when i sold it and the next guy loved it. If a carbed v-twin can last that long a newer IL4 600 should last a long long time.
