May 06, 108900km (67667 miles) so far.

Welding failure on one of the exhausts, replaced under warranty
Misfiring problem (after servicing job), replaced all igniton coils, HT leads and Caps which solved the problem.

Nothing else so far, I am really very happy with this bike

ding, ding, ding We have a winner! Way to go Vlassis. I've never kept a bike long enough to hit 100,000kms, maybe I'll make it there wiht my CBF as well.  :031:



This 100,000 km milestone...is it such a big one? It works out about 62,000 miles. I've known some suzuki SV's to exceed 120,000 miles with few problems!

Not really, no. Just never kept a bike that long.  :015:

Well the guy who bought my Vincent Rapide at 120,000 miles said it was "Just nicely run in."  :062:

May 08, owned since Jan 09, 5800 miles.

Only one problem, was just leaving a friend of mine in The Netherlands to go to Hoek van Holland to get the Sunday night ferry back, to got straight to work from Harwich.

Just before I got on the bike I said to my mate "Well, it's a Honda, they are reliable".  :002: Thirty seconds later, press the starter, engine is turning over but not firing.  :003: Even tried to bump start, all to no avail.  :232:

Called the international breakdown service, guy couldn't start it either, seemed the fuel pump wasn't working.

To cut a long story short, dealer in Zoetermeer (NL) diagnosed that the connector to the fuel pump had come loose. Apparently they've had a few over there, seems it is not pushed in properly at the factory.

I got an extra day holiday and a visit to Rotterdam zoo out of it  :046: and it got fixed under the European warranty.

My other bike is a mountain bike.

That's a useful warning, Ron.
Maybe we should all check our fuel pump connector for security.
I wouldn't want that coming lose while overtaking on a busy road.

Now to go hunting for that connector. Service manual out and searching!

You’ve got to be very careful if you don’t know where you are going, because you might not get there.

Found it. The connector we want to check is the fuel pump 3P (Black) connector as shown in the service manual on page 6-51.
Proper inspection will probably require lifting the tank, which is a pain in the 'whatsits' with the upper and lower fairings fitted.

A very good friend of mine has a VFR750 with 270000kms (167770miles). He claims no oil consumption and no mechanical problems so far. He was changed charging coils (generator coils)twice.

A bit :455: but still a Honda, my daily runaround into Sydney CBD was a 1983 Honda 250 Custom (forerunner to the Rebel) and that had been around the clock with nearly 130,000 Km on her.  Brilliant runner, always started first toot (no battery replacement!!) and apart from some tyres, oil/filters (didn't burn a drop), replacement rear brake shoes and a chain n gog set to replace a snapped drive belt the only other costs I incurred in 3 years were petrol, Test, Insurance and Rego.  I paid a thousand bucks for it, ran it for 3 years and sold it for AU$900.  Now that is cheap commuting :028:
