    Who's bike has the worst scheduled service?

    Time for a competition that a european bike might actually win
    Who has the most outrageous scheduled service? One of the worst I'm aware of is the BMW HP2, which needs new con rods at 50,000 km.

    But surely the italians could do better than that, what have you got?

    H2R needs a bottom end rebuild after 15 hours.
    Squeezing 300hp from the engine does have sacrifices.

    The Hypermotard 32,000km service cost $2,500. But that included clutch and tyres.

    My wife moaned about about me saying that my motorbike was cheap to run compared to her Golf R. She could be wising up!

    The MV was $800 minimum every 6,000km, and by that stage you needed tyres as well pushing it over a tonne each time. Add in all the stuff you needed to fix that should have been safety recalls, and upgrading components to bring performance up to Jap bikes that cost 1/2 as much made it all difficult to swallow.
    Trying to think of a wise and sincere signature quote, but the only words that leap to mind are, "TITTY SPRINKLES"

    I went to buy a HP2 from the bmw dealer in burswood around three to four years ago for $21,000 or there abouts i posted a picture of it on psb at the time i really can't believe i was either lucky i didn't or unlucky if i did can you tell me what goes wrong with the conrod big end bearing or small end or something else.

    This sounds very unlikely for a bmw i have seen guys go close too a million kays on the old ones with just changing the barrels pistons and rings and servicing the cylinder heads.

    that's basically every dirt bike, hence why WR/CRF/EXC dont make the greatest road bikes, i have all the parts in stock but still got the dr snooze as it was just easier. i would have rebuilt a WR/CRF/EXC about 4 times by now or if i had a berger 570 still waiting on parts for the first rebuild lol

    useless trivia : modern dirt 4 strokes are based off F1 engines, back in the late 90's when yamaha designed the first ever competitive YZ400F (The grand father of modern 4 strokes) they had guys from toyota F1 come in for the engine design

    That was the 426 wasn't it? The one that turned so many healthy riders into cripples they had to cut the power back a bit.

    Na mate 400s came first then 426. The original CRF was designed to be a 500 prior to the rules being written that 450 would be the class limit, they sleeved it down just before the release

    TZ 250, pistons every 500km, crank every 2000km.
    Still the best bike ever.
