Highest Mileage
on: September 02, 2018, 06:03:29 PM
hi, sorry if this has been done before but im wondering what mileages people have got upto and what engine problems they have had along the way?
i have recently bought my s1000xr with 23k miles on it, i think its only had regular servicing.
i just sold a tuono because of all the horror stories i was reading on the forums about them dropping valves very frequently, i havent seen anything bad about the s1000xr engine at all.

No known issues with the XR engine, 23k not exceptional so nothing to worry about.....

What Bree said...nothing major that we're aware of....we get the odd water pump leak, there have also been a couple of poorly cams....other than that the engines are quite bullet proof and seem to be able to take a beating. If well maintained, they should last well.
Every manufacturer has their horror stories, but the BMW "S" series engine appears to be one of the better ones out there.
