Having this bike for 4 months so far, I have ridden almost 9k miles.
I regret nothing! This bike is amazing!

Finally ran into my first problem though, cracked thermostat! :mad:

Usually the bike would run 180 - 190 degrees, but I noticed lately it was cruising in the 210 - 220 mark, and even hit HI TEMP in traffic once.

So I took it to the dealer and they found the problem. All covered under warranty though, so no biggie. Just sucks I had to take my riced out IS350 to work for a few days (I hate driving cars now).

Anyways, at the 10k mile mark, I have officially replaced:

x2 rear tires
x1 front tire
x1 chain
x1 thermostat

Other than that, I have modded the crap out of this bike, with a lot more carbon fiber parts being made as we speak (should be another 3 weeks before I get them).

That really impressive. Ive had mine for 4 months and only managed 2k miles.
Mine is all street riding though, and that's not even twisty riding, straight chicken strip highway

Did you happen to notice how hot the bike was before the HI TEMP came up? I've always wondered. Mine's gotten to 230 before...

47,500 as of last night when I rolled in the garage lol.. come at me, bro! :D

Average 5k per rear tire? What kind of tires are you riding on?
This is the norm for me, Rosso Corsa or Super Corsa, I get 5-6k on them. Trying the Rosso II this time to see if it lasts any longer (but they are not as good in the rain I've noticed).
