Well, Spooner has a 98 600 gix, and I believe he has 60 million miles on it..o.k. not milloins, but he has over 30k on it, and from what I've seen it still runs strong..my 97 600 had 23k on it before it got sent to heaven, and it ran great, w/o any problems....

I think you will have wear of parts like your rear suspension and failure of electric parts before the motor fails.

my 96 gixxer has 43000km's (maybe with a bitof speedo error, upto 10% out) I have used this bike for commuting, trackdays, weekend rides, riding in the shittiest weather u can think of etc and it still pulls like a train, the only major mechanical thing i need to do soon is replace camgiudes and cam chain.. i maintain it very weel, regular oil/filter changes etc, this thing should do 100,000km's easy..

Mine had 40,000+ miles on it when I sold it to my insurance Co (don't ask). It ran great, I'd guess 80-100kmi+ if you maintain it well.

Yeah mine has 42,000 on it and I run it super hard-just use full synthetic oil and keep an eye on everything-

I rebuilt my motor at 35K miles just cause it was a bit low on compression, But it ran great... And anyone that has been out on the road/track with me all know I am not easy on my bikes.. lol
