I am just coming up to 100,000 km on my 02 Sprint st , one stator rewind and normal maintenance, and of course tyres and batteries etc, so I can recommend the late model 955 engines and I assume the 1050 is a better engine .

Agree with snoops

I do 1200 km a week just to and from work. Good Oil and Maintenance is the key I got 1.2mil out of my K75 and my K12 has 350,000 km but reqires cam chain and clutch thats why I bought the Sprint RS with 36,000 on it. Love the Trumpy and the ease of maintenance. All I can say is happy riding

My last Sprint ST did 76,000kms of very hard riding and frequently fast two up in the local hills.

It still looked like new, ran like a top and started first time every time.

+2 to the regular oil changes and maintenance.

I ran semi synthetic as I do in my current Triumph triples

High mileage is great - so long as the owner didn't have a long hiatus with no one riding the bike...it's neglect that kills them, not miles.

My 955 Sprint has 80,000 km`s on it, which is 50,000 miles, it runs like a watch, compression is good on all cylinders and it doesn`t burn any oil. The suspension is a bit tired, I changed the fork seals (one was weeping) and put new fork oil in which seems to have sorted the front and I intend to get the rear shock rebuilt soon, which is only $120 from Radshock in Brisbane.

She said, "You can`t take ANYTHING seriously, can you?" I just laughed.
