Bah! Welcome aboard noobclrider said:...I tried to search for the miles but could not find anything...
I wonder whose signature line you saw that in!?! And I swipped it from Mr. Yota himself...RavenTai said:Saw this in a sig recently,
"We will know how long they last when the fist one wears out"
wile maybe a bit of an over statement it is not that far from the truth, most of the 80 here are in the 100-200K range and most still going strong, some of the 200+ rigs are starting to show their age some with some running great and some with problems but still running, not many around with much over 300K to compare
I would say most should be thinking about an engine rebuild at 250-350K, nip things in the bud before they get expensive,
If regular maintenance is given it will last,
Ozcal--OZCAL said:Miles/kilometers are a whole different thing down under. I routinely see 80s in pretty decent condition at used car lots, only to find 300,000 + on the odometer.
Typically in an ad for an 80 the seller will list features but not mileage. High miles down here are just not the deal killer it is in the States.
Can you explain why the differences exist between Oz/States regarding mileage?
I assume you all ride your rigs really hard--maybe harder than most soccer moms do here on the way to Starby's...
Anything to do with maintenance schedule/periodicity?
Anything to do with the Oz oil/petrol/OEM materials?
This is a pretty interesting distinction between OZ and the states....
