How many miles are you guys getting out of your 650L's? I just picked one up with 22 thousand on it. Seems to run well. What should I watch for?

never had an L, but my uncle got 46,000 outa a top end. Run it, and if you notice any diffornce in the performance or loss of compression, then worry.

Welcome to TT commie! I have an 05 L, with 6500 miles on it. The only reason I am putting a piston in mine is I want a hicomp piston. They really will last into and over the 20k mile mark. Just maintain them well and they will go. If you have no smoke or any alarming noise, just ride it!:cool:
