How many miles can you go?

How many miles does everyone have on their teryx? I have often wondered how many miles can be put on a factory teryx, if it was taken care of. I have an 08 that has almost 1600 care free miles. I hope to put alot more on it.

Hi All Happy New Year!!!!!!!

I have an 08 Teryx with 3700 miles 366 hrs. and still running fine. It uses no oil and I have changed the belt once and getting ready to change it around 4000 miles. I have adjusted the valves 2 times. Feel it is a great car and plan on maybe a 2012 model with hope they have a bit larger engine.

I've never done anything to mine in almost 1600 miles except change oil. Is it a big job to remove the shims on the belt. The last time I had the deflection checked it was just barely over the limit. Still no problems though.

860 miles bone stock. I thought I had over 1200 stock, but found my paperwork that says otherwise.
I switched out stock gauge when I put BB on it.
2600 miles with BB 840 kit.
Stock original belt 3460 miles, no problems.
Adjusted valves 3 times. Once stock, twice since 840.
I did have to replace brake pads also.

3460 miles of hard ass miles, can't believe ain't tore something up yet.
I's been trying!

I don't believe anything the hour meter says, it is very unreliable.
