Who Has The Most Miles or Hours?

I am running the same post on KTM Talk to see how the two Brands compare? Some KTM 525s have gone 10.000 miles and a rummor of a 400 going 20.0000 miles.

2005 Husaberg FS650E

Currently at 2400 miles and 82 engine hours. No problems to report.

Hopefully my regiment of oil/filter changes and valve checks every 10 engine hours or 300 miles will keep the Berg happy and trouble free.

Re: Who Has The Most Miles or Hours?

A guy here in Germany rode a FE 501 2000 for 20.000 km before overhauling the engine for the first time. (about 500 hours)
Riding about 150-180 hours without any problem or less problems seem to be usual.
A mate of mine has a 2003 FE 400 with 11.000km and about 200hrs and now he has the first reason to split the cases: a failed transmission bearing. The rest of the engine is still in good condition.

Re: Who Has The Most Miles or Hours?

hello,

i think hribman means my person with the mate of him!?

my 03 fe 400 has now over 7000 miles and about 245 engine hours.
after gone over 6600 miles/235 engine hours the bearing behind the clutch failed. so we had to open the engine because the cage of the bearing
was distributed at the engine.

failed bearing:

2002 650SM 10,500 miles 195 hours or so.

Cam bearing and conrod failure at 9600 miles / 178 hours, then rebuilt.

Now she's pumping out 65bhp so I don't think she will last quite that long this time but lets see

my 02 300exc is at 11,500 miles (all off-road, mostly singletrack). did 1 top end and 1 re-ring so far. it's good to see some folks are getting excellent durability out of the big 4-strokes too. that makes me fear getting one a little bit less.
