I wouldn't worry about it at all, there are guys with 100,000 miles on their R1's with nothing but regular maintenance.

Don't worry man, 10K miles is nothing. Just do your regular oil change and maintenance, everything will be fine... :yesnod

Sorry bro but that is a dumb question.

check back when you hit 100K ,

10K is nothing.....would you be wondering if your car was gonna crap out at 10K? please....as a precisely built machine, 10K is just getting started

57000 km (~36,000 miles), running hard sometimes, a lot of long distance commuting. Nothing. Runs like a swiss watch.
Only gets the tires unevenly bald from the long distance runs, though I understand that getting over 11,000 km (~7,000 miles) From D207 ZRs is quite an accomplishment...

There was a california guy in motorcyclist magazine with a blue 2000 R1 that broke 100,000 miles. The amazing thing is that the valves still didn't need to be adjusted.

What are you expecting will go wrong?

Remember, you didnt buy a Ducati or harley. Jap bikes really are super reliable. Just change the oil regularly and take care of it.

When you all say regular maintanence, what are you talking about other than oil change?
follow the maintenance as per the owner's manual's maintenance schedule and the bike will run forever :rock
