Highest mileage 690
« on: December 22, 2015, 05:23:48 am »
Hi all, just wondering what sort of life expectancy the 690 engine is capable of.

Post your mileage, year, and any engine issues here.

If you like reading ride reports check out rtw with Noah on advrider.  He rode around for 2 or 3 years and posted about everything including breakdowns. If I remember correctly his first post may be a synopsis of his adventure including the information you are looking for.

It's worth a read either way.

That's quite a bit more than I was expecting! I don't think most 690's cover many miles. Haven't seen many over 20k, and most are below 10k. I thought there might be a couple of members on here who had done more...

You should expect long mileage.  I had an '04 625 SXC with the carburetored predecessor LC4 engine.  It had 6,900 miles when I got it 3/2006 & 22,832 when I sold it, after the 690 saw me, in 10/2010.  She was still running strong.
