Wow...that's crazy mileage. Congrats on that milestone. Makes me feel bad that I only have 43000 on my 93 750 and I thought that was fairly high miles.

Nothing special concerning maintenance; just very religious about oil changes. And I only use Motul 300V 10-40 full synthetic.

But it does have a couple expensive parts that fail regularly.
I'm not including items such as chains, sprockets, wheel bearings, my fat a$$ wearing out stock fork springs, or self inflicted damaged such as road debris poking a hole in the radiator.

1) It's on it's 4th stator. -- they cost about $150 each -- first one was under warranty; hence free.
2) It's on it's 3rd STV actuator. -- they cost about $450 each.
3) AND it has a (free to me) replacement frame. Because a jackass backed into it in a parking lot and cracked the original frame.

Wow!  Those are 'miles' not kilometres!    Hail

I am impressed.  Just completed trip #5 to BC, back and forth, and have only 91,000+ kilometres.

Do you have a long commute to work?  

I ask because the only person I know with high 'mileage' uses his bike as his daily commuter, from outside of the city.

I've had multiple commutes with this bike:

'00 through '02 = 65 miles each way; from Califon, NJ into midtown Manhattan NYC.
(Almost all interstate and city driving. A lot of lane splitting and filtering in NYC and at Hudson river crossings.)
(For a while after 9/11; only motorcycles were allowed in downtown NYC and through the Holland Tunnel.)

'03 through '06 = 45 miles each way; from Califon, NJ to Princeton NJ.
(All two lane roads that I have known all my life.)

'06 through '07 = ~95 miles each way; from Allentown, PA to Princeton NJ.
(This was the most enjoyable commute; all two lane back roads for at least 3 hours; but usually closer to 4 hours; per day. Smile )
(On very rare occasions I had to work in Manhattan. I-78 the whole way. Boring Sad ; and very cold during the winter. EEK! )


'07 through '08 = 55 miles each way; from Allentown, PA to Horsham, PA.
'09 = no commute = unemployed. Sad

Secondary Throttle Valve Actuator
It's an electronic motor in a black box that adjusts the positioning of the second set of throttle valves (butterflies) in the air intake according to gear positions and engine rpm.

Good for you, though I expect any Japanese bike to manage that if properly cared for.

What I can't get over is the length of your commutes EEK! Why bother wasting that much of your life droning on the highway.

Out here, anything more than a 1/2 hr is considered a lot, and over 45 minutes is nuts.

Riding is wasting your life? He even stated that much of it was so enjoyable that he would stretch an extra our out of the commute, I'm guessing by taking the even longer way home.

If riding is wasting your life then why do you own a motorcycle?

I'm flying home to repair the engine on my 00 bandit 600.  after 10,000 miles on my one month road trip, a spark plug shimmied itself loose and took the threads in the head with it.  Not knocking suzuki reliability, it's my own fault for not maintaining the bike properly.

I expect to get another 50k out of it once the head's back on.  Inlove  3 yrs of sitting though, i'm really hoping the thing still fires up, don't feel like rebuilding carbs while i'm home.

Congrats on rolling over 200k.  Send it to honda, make them cry that their korean counterpart does it as well as they do

I'd contact suzuki.   Good chance their engineers would love to see this engine.   And they may get you a new engine if they do.  

I have heard of GM doing this to a Caddy Limo driver in Florida.  He had 450,000 miles on the original engine.

During the Summer it was HOT !
I swear the temperature in the Holland Tunnel never drops below 80 degrees; even in the winter.
And the GW Bridge is COLD during the Winter.
Also; watch riding on the Pulaski Skyway. If you go down you WILL be run over.

But it was fun riding in on Sundays when there is no traffic. Especially during the Fall when the winds pick up.
Those crosswinds at intersections are FUN ! Smile

I hope it makes 300. The cam chain is getting rather loud.  Sad )

Nope; still on same Stator and actuator it had at 200k.

I am planning to change the wheel bearings this weekend.
This will be the third time for new wheel bearings since buying the bike new in 2000.

You should have no problem reaching 200 on your Busa.

Congrats on your milestone.

I just turned 192,000 last week on the 04 FJR.


192 / 7 = 27k miles per year

250k - dang dude, good for you!!!  Goes to show with maintenance how a bike can last.

And I have to agree - you ARE a motorcyclist....

I have owned five Suzuki's in my riding career and each was a great bike and never ever let me down.  

Suzuki makes bikes I like.

No hard luggage. No full fairing. Not 700lb. And CHAIN DRIVE.

Sorry. I just don't see how this kind of mileage is possible.

Amazing.... As for the secondary valve actuator, I know lots of bikes have these and its a popular mod is to remove the secondary butterflies. Did you just want to keep it stock or does it not work well with the 750? I have a 1250 bandit and it helped alot when I remove them. Also how often do you get your valves adjusted?

I never thought about removing the secondary butterflies.
When the secondary valve actuator fails; the bike will not rev past 8k.
Besides; I tend to keep my vehicles mostly stock.

In 250k; the valves have been checked 4 times.
Only needed very minor adjustments twice.
(ie. in 1 exhaust valve still in spec but not matching the others.)

Wow, that's very few Valve checks for the amount of miles. I had my current Suzuki's valves checked at 15k, then 40k. I may wait until 80k for the next, as not a single one was out of spec. Of course with my luck, if I don't check them on schedule...

I did not start keeping track of tires until ~67k in 2002. (Although I probably do have receipts.)


Before 67k:
6 sets of Dunlop 207's ? (maybe a set or two of 208's)

67,250.0  - 1 set Contiforce
70,250.0 - 1 set 207's (flat on trip)
79,077.0 - 1 set Contiforce
90,557.0 - 1 set Contiforce Max
99.602.0 - 1 set Contiforce
102,929.0 - 1 set Contiforce
109,854.0 - 1 set Tomahawk T1
114,900.0 - 1 Tomahawk T1 (front only; front was bald back was still good)
125,000.0 - 1 set Tomahawk T1
129,000.0 - 1 Tomahawk T1 (front only; front was bald back was still good)
131,186.0 - 1 Set Road Attacks
139,500.0 - 1 set Tomahawk T1
144,330.0 - 1 Tomahawk T1 (front only; front was bald back was still good)
147,672.0 - 1 set Road Attacks
155,000.0 - 1 set Contiforce
162,000.0 - 1 set Tomahawks T3
168,030.0 - 1 Tomahawk T3 (front only; front was bald back was still good)
171,500.0 - 1 set Road Attack
181,938.0 - 1 set Contiforce
189,500.0 - 1 set Road Attack
199,777.0 - 1 set Road Attack
208,329.0 - 1 set Road Attack
214,874.0 - 1 set Road Attack

233,555.0 - 1 set Road Attack

Again, congrats - you really got your moneys worth out of that Gixxer.

That's mainly the reason I removed them in my 1250. With them in it really flattens out at about 7.5k rpm and beyond, after removal will rev to redline (9.5k) much harder without flattening out. I'm not sure why they have them in the first place, must be a noise or to meet tail pipe emissions thing..

I'm thinking ur going to miss that 750.  Though I have a V-Twin Honda VTR, I think the 750 is the best SB out there.  I sold my friends '07 for him, but before I did I rode it a bit & wow what a moto.

But ET - how the hell did U get that many miles on Conti Road Attacks?  They must have been baloney skins when U changed em.  I think I got 5k max out of mine & it was probably toast way before that.

And that many miles is VERY impressive.
