How many miles does your zx6r have?

I have a 2006 zx6r, I recently purchased with 30,000 miles. It's running perfect as it should. It's a real beast and I just love it. I've often wondered how many miles can you get out of a well maintained zx6r 636. In its entire lifespan what would be a reasonable amount of miles you could get out of your zx6r? Does anyone have any experience with high mileage? How many miles does your zx6r have? Thanks everyone for the help

Ehhh i couldn't answer that as well as others on this forum could honestly.

1) As a rider, I only average about 3-3.5k miles a year.

2) And I bought my zx6r less than a 1000 miles ago. Plus i baby her.

But i can deff speak for the reliability. The engine and tranny are teflon. Lots of powwweeerrrr!

Not a single issue. no leaks, no misfires, no popping, no overheating, no sluggishness. Heres hoping she could keep this up for another 10k miles.

I sent her to the shop for a valve adjustment just yesterday. I didn't notice but shes had a slight ticking. I found out when my guy hooked a stethoscope up to her and showed me.

that's something u might wanna check for if u haven't already.

Hey alexhope. Thanks for the advice. My bike also has 30000 miles. We're you able to get that ticking fixed? How much? And what was needed? Was it just the valve adjustment

Hey Sanctuary. Wats up man. That's awesome that you track your bike man. How does she do compared to the other bikes out there? And when a the track the rpm are usually sky high right? I've never been to a track. But I think it's awesome.

Bought my '07 from the original owner. 41k miles at time of purchase. Currently just over 55k. Had it a little over a year. Zero issues from the bike itself. Only parts I've replaced were either upgrades, maintenance items, damaged during an attempted theft, or damaged during my low-side.

cost me $250 for the valve adjustment. ticking gone! It needed 2 maybe 4 shims, i can't remember.

The other work i did was optional. Gaskets, o-rings, spark plugs, air filter, etc.
I did it for the peace of mind since I bought a bike w/o maintenance records.

still waiting for my final invoice

That's awesome. I wish i had a good motorcycle mechanic nearby that I could trust. Mechanics here like in many places have a horrible rapsheet. And my bike is my ONLY transportation, so I refuse to let some dumbass experiment on my ride. My bike is running like a champ. But it be nice to know a good mechanic for anything that could come up

You would be hard pressed to find one worn out. Statistically it's just rare since as they get on up there in mileage one of two things happen:
A: you wreck it and it ends up a scrap heap. Not many people commute highway on a sport bike so the miles they do get are from activities more prone to wrecks on a per mile basis.

B: you get bored of it and sell it to get a new bike (a disease we all get) and since the price gets lower and lower with miles it often eventually ends up in the hands of a kid that rags it out or wrecks it. They also tend to need more expensive maintenance items taken care of as they age and the people buying them for cheap aren't going to throw money at it to make it right. They just ride it till it starts to go south and sell it at a loss to someone who finishes it off.
Anyhow, mines at 18,500
