    Thats a very hard question Some go at 40k miles and I have seen some still going well at 100k plus.

    As will it be fixable. It aldends what fails

    rule of thumb is 50k! loads of factors come into play here! as keith said, some last, some dont! if you look after it then it should last! neglect it and it wont. yeah they can be repaired/reconditioned but most people upgtade to the vxr turbo as its more reliable and cheaper!
