Who has the highest milage on there Springer?
« on: August 17, 2019, 08:30:42 AM »

Hi Guys my Fxstsse 2007 passed the 100,000Km mark this last August 2019. I do several long distance trips every year, doing approx 600km per day.

Now have 100991Km = 62753Miles. How many miles has yours clocked up?

Motor is factory stock, original exhausts, 2008 air filter, with custom dyno mapping of the ECM
Apart from the Head gaskets product improvement which was done at 16,000km in 2008, the motor has never been apart.
It occasionally has starting issues and might need 2 or 3 attempts to get it running, but so far never let me down.

I have 42,000 Kilometers on my 2008 FXSTSSE2. I bought it in Texas in 2011 with 6,300 miles ( 10,000 K's)

For several years I also had another Harley , a 2013 CVO Breakout. It had a 110 Pro Upgrade kit , 259E cams , high comp' pistons yada yada ( unnecessary !)

My annual mileage was spread over 2 bikes for many years. Last 2 years I have only had the 2008 Springer , my preferred bike of the 2 BY FAR !

( Breakout sold , never did like the ponderous handling from the 240 rear !)

I do not do much mileage nowadays , circumstances change and I basically ride every Saturday morning with a regular group , but mostly metro local.

Bike is 100 % stock other than V&H Big Shot Staggered exhaust and ECM "tuning" by yours truly ( me!)

The V&H Big Shot would not be my exhaust of choice but was on the bike in Texas in 2011 so Que sera sera...
