Awesome, that's good stuff. Have you replaced the Stator or actuator again since the 200k mark?  

Impressive though, that's a lot of riding on a true sport bike. I'm planning on 200k from the Busa, so this makes me hopeful  Thumbsup


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...
