Like all Jap biles i think this one is built to last. Had a 79 Kawasaki 650 that i just recently unloaded, It was my first bike, I have not rode it in at least 4 years so it has been sitting. Even with 45,000 miles on it, old nasty fuel and being banged up as it is, i just connected a jumper to the battery, and bang it started on the 3rd kick. Unbelievable! I think the Warrior will get better as more miles are put on this motor. Like Rob at Orient said and i agree, these things are definitely bulletproof.

hmmmmm, from the Middle of March to the Middle of October last year, I put 13k on my bike, at that rate, I'm looking at 4 years to get over 50k. The longest ride so far was Sturgis last year, still trying to decide on on Sturgis again or the AlCan Hwy this year

It's easier to tell you that we did about 12 hours of riding a day, some days a little less some a little more. My body felt as good each day at the end as it did at the beginning, no cramps, pains or aches. After a three week road trip I still wanted to be riding. From the time I got my bike in March to the time I put it away in October, I put under 300 miles on my car.

I did an ironbutt run on mine for Daytona 2002.1100 miles in 22hours.Not as comfortable as my Roadstar Silverado but a lot more fun.After 6000 miles no problems.
