Realistically, if you follow the maintenance schedule (especially oil changes), you will end up selling or trading the machine long before the engine needs an overhaul. Modern bike engines are really good. I'd guess with proper care the engine would go about 100,000 miles before needing any major work.TimNC said:I'm interested in how many miles a Burgman 400 rider can expect before engine overhaul. I know of one that has over 12,000 - in 5 months. I have just over 2000.

11,540 miles. [snipped] I think that about covers it, and the 400 is running like a top so far.
Checked it at 600 miles - spot on, have not looked again. :!:How have the valve clearances been each time you have been in there?
