whats considered high kilometer's for a bike?

I am lookin at a ex500, that has 32 000KM...which is about 18 000miles...

is that too high? I know cars usually 200 000km is considered high, not sure how it works with bikes

I should easily hit 10,000 miles this year with my bike. I've seen a 4 year old Busa with 50,000 miles on the clock. If a bike is properly maintained, there really isn't a set limit to how many miles is too many. If you can be sure the seller did a good job changing fluids, keeping everything lubed, and didn't abuse it (too much), it should be a pretty solid bike with plenty of miles of life left in it.

But that is if the bike was mantained properly. A neglected bike can be in worse condition with less than 10,000 miles than a properly mantained bike with 100,000 miles.

The bike will be fine for many more miles to come. I sold my '84 Ninja GPZ 900R with over 56,000 miles on it and it ran as good as my friends new bikes. The engine was still smooth, idled well, still made great power.

JasonTLR had a post with a guy whose bike had 750,000 miles, so all should go well with the proper care.

the only issue with that, is if I buy a bike from autotrader, I can't tell if it's been raced or not, which is a problem in itself...but based on the person who's selling it, should say enough to tell me how he'd drive it by askin some smart questions ;)

Heck, my 96' 600F3 has 30,000 miles on it, and she still runs like a dream. Picked her up with only 3000 miles @ $3,100.00 and that was only 3 yrs ago. If you take care of your bike, she can push 1000's of miles or Kilometers
