    Mileage check and things you have discovered...

    I figured we could start a mileage check and stuff you've learned on your journey so far. I'm hoping that with this thread, recent purchasers can get an idea of what to expect as the miles pile on.



    I've just crested 2400 miles. Second oil change. Spinner had a fair amount of metal paste to clean out and my screen had a fair amount of clutch material in it. OEM tires had lots of tread but hummed on the highway. I replaced them with street tires (michelin pilots)

    Transmission is super smooth and engine is super smooth. Runs perfectly and is a blast to ride. Averaging 80mpg

    Discovered that, unless you do burnouts, it will take +2,000 miles before you notice any wear on the stock hockey puck tires.

    How many times have you cleaned the spinner?

    I'm approaching 900 miles so I've only cleaned it once and it was nasty. Nothing else to add at this point.

    I'm shocked Honda doesn't use it on many bolts. It should be on just about every bolt on this thing since you're constantly revving the piss out of it.

    I have IRCs and stock tires get a lot worse than those.
