Take care of it properly (especially oil and filter changes) and 100K-200K isn't out of the question. If it's only 40K, I've only got 4 K left in my "00 sv. :lame

+1...Not counting factory defects/recalls, there's no reason a well maintained bike can't go over 100,000 miles...Todays oils are so advanced, that when they do tests to check engine wear, there's usually minimum, if it's been properly serviced...

Valves are a different story, but they're alot easier to take care of than a blown engine...

44k on my '97 XX...but i think high mileage is just about typical with hondas
Especially that bike...There are two near me that I know of personally...One has 84,000 and looks brand new...The other has somewhere around 50,000 and is also in top condition...

My first bike was a 88' Suzuki Katana 600. I bought it with 29,000 miles and sold it with about 30,500 on her. Still ran and rode like new. Getting over 100,000 on todays bikes is certainly possible if they're taken care of.
