132,000 on a DL1000, thats interesting, what if any , problems have come up that are milage related ?
what have you used this for ? touring abroard ? basically how did you rack these miles up ?
Read this for a 200K mile DL1000
27 oil changes - Castrol Syntec 10x40 (full synthetic)
14 oil filter changes - Fram PH6018
6 front brake pad changes. EBCHH. you must be able to stop !!
2 rear brake pad changes. stock suzuki pads. I dont use the rear brakes much.
1 sprocket set at 61,120 miles
5 front tires
8 rear tires
3 valve clearance checks. no adjustments have been made. all within spec.
3 spark plug changes
3 coolant drain & refill
0 leaks !!!
There has only been TWO part failures in all of these miles!! The rear exhaust/header gasket at 66,217 miles and the front brake stop switch at 100,000 miles. These two items total replacement is under $20. And I still have 11 months left on my extended warranty !!
The stock battery that came with the K3 finally died @ 110,529 miles
Imagine that, in 120,000 miles only (so far) one broke part/failure for a total of $4.00.
Other maintenance performed from 100K to 120K:
6 oil changes/3 filter changes - Castrol 10X40 syntec/Fram filters
plug change @100,584
sprockets/chain @ 102,201
replaced front wheel bearings @ 105,519. One looked good, one needed replacement
rear brake pads EBC @ 110,356
front brake pads EBCHH @ 111,342
Now it is time for my 150,000 mile writeup (Sept 2009). Once again there have been NO mechnicals and NO parts had to be purchased except those that I consider as 'routine maintenance'.
In the last 30,000 miles: (since the last writeup)
-a new chain at 124,436 mi.
-EBCHH front brake pads at 130,067mi (lasted 18725 mi)
-adjusted vales at 133,021 miles. 5 were a little tight. previous adjustment was at 66,804 mi. (all were within spec)
-replaced rear wheel/sprocket bearings at 135,736. first replacement.
-EBCHH front brake pads at 143,668 mi
-replaced fuel filter at 143,408 miles. first replacement. At this time I purchased a new fuel pump that I will use on my extended range tank. The original pump is still good.
-replaced battery at 147,336 miles. second replacement
-replaced chain/sprockets at 150,001 mi. previous chain lasted 25,000 mi and previous sprockets lasted 48,000 miles
-8 oil changes and 4 oil filter changes. all Castrol 10x40 syntech w/ Fram filters
That's the last I could find, well, then there is a picture that shows the DL1000 odometer stops counting at 199999 miles, it just stops there...
I wonder if the SV1000 odometer is the same?
