High Mileage 848

First Post and glad to be a part of this forum.

I have an 08 848 with 44,000km or 27,000mi and have done all servicing at the dealer on time. Ive had all the recalls done, most recently a voltage regulator and have had no real problems or issues with my bike. I do get the occasional bike shut off like most but i cant really complain for the amount of use it gets.

Just wondering if anyone else has this type mileage and has had any issues that i should look forward to.

Thx

check your TPS codes. you might have a idle delay and that can cause the engine to shut off. i sorta have the same problem, except i have 1400 miles and mine was in the garage for a year, so when i warmed her up for the first time after a year, she turned off as if i hit the engine cut off switch while the lights would stay on. i left her for a week then turned her on again, and it turned off again. i started her up again and it was normal. the next day i turned her on again,and it didnt turn off. i will do the same tomorrow to check. i asked around and the dealers cant explain specifically what it is because it does not stall or anything it just turns off lol.

Over 50,000K and no worries. Had the rad replaced along with the reg at 18,000 and it hasn't stalled since first servicing at 1000K.

I have 30K miles and my 848 is running strong.

I am debating doing my own valves and belts in 2K miles.
That would save me 1000.00 and I know it would be done right.

ive had the belts changed and no valve adjustment was needed when i did my 36k service. total money all in with a sprocket i only paid $750 tax in. Doing the belts and stuff yourself may not save you that much money. Im lucky i have a dealer that doesnt BS me and i think the prices are fair, especially because im treated like a valued customer. Wish i had the tech no how to work on the bike myself but i get nervous im going to break or screw something up that will cost a grand.

Nice to hear others are riding as much as me.

As an owner of a low mileage 848, you guys are makin' me feel good about my purchase. It's good to see so few problems arising with the 848.

I'm pushing up on 11,000 miles now. Had the dash replaced at 542 miles and a couple voltage regulators. Thats been about it for issues. No need to adjust the valves at 7,500 as they were good to go. Could'nt be happier with my 848!!
