    HOw many hours you got?

    A lot of forums have a place for people to post how many miles they have on their old(er) cars and list their maintenance. Can we start something where people just list their year and model, hours, and then if its a stock motor and/or what maintenance (repairs) have got them there? I'm interested because I just bought a 96 Wave Venture with 222 hours and even though I have a new one coming, I might keep it. I like that its smaller than brand new ones.... either way, I think it would be cool to see if people are taking these 90's machines to 3 or 400 hours with some simple maintenance (maybe some are still stock)...

    I'll go first

    1996 Wave Venture 1100
    222 hours
    Still Runs Great (a little bogging every now and then)
    according to the previous owner, who was the only owner, there was never any major maintenance or rebuilding done. Compression around 125ish in each cylinder

    I think I know who your talking about. Saying that crew rides a lot is an understatement. Saying they ride all the time doesnt even do it justice. They ride to a fault is more accurate.

    jjf, Yeah that’s pretty good. I did have to had the FZR motor changed under warranty at 271 hrs back casing on the head. I’m currenty at 828+ total hours on the FZR, 75% original parts including the SC & Clutches. The 08 SD RXP-X loss a supercharger gear on my RivaXXX, only 50 hrs on it. The motor had 371 hrs at the time, ski had been modified around 180hrs. The Kawi is rock solid 534+ hrs, (2) batteries, (2) holes feeding the magneto, and just a few weeks ago the bearing holder. No complains
