31,000km (19,262 miles) on my 2015 PCX in just over 2 years ... so probably not me. I'd be curious to know how many miles/km people are doing per year on average though.

Woo, nice work guys. I bet there's some Thai riders who don't/can't participate who have over 50,000 km, as it may be their only transportation.

My 2013 has only 6680 miles or so. I'm almost embarrassed to admit it, but I only got it a month ago, so that's my excuse.

At my current rate, that'll be me in about 18 months.

30000 miles on my 2011 pcx 125. Valves checked at 10000 not bothered since, serviced most years by myself never by a garage.Written off once and put back on the road for £100.Have thought about replacing it with another but whats the point i'll keep it till it blows up.The best bike i've ever had.
There's a few scrapes on the body work but after a good clean and 20 yards it looks as good as new.

one of them did, cant remember if it was the inlet or the exhaust.I haven't bothered since because it hasn't slowed down that much on top end brand new it topped out at 65 mph and now it does 60 mph but the belt is 12000 miles old .As you can probably work out i left the first belt in for 18000 miles. The driven face does require changing as its a little noisy but i've got one in the house along with new clutch shoes which i will change when i next take the cover off which will be in about 6000 miles.

14,800 on my 2016. Need to book the 15k service which I've beem quoted £250.

Still rides great although I've lost some top speed as its on the original belt and rollers. Hitting the limiter at 62mph.

Valves never checked and I have no reason to ask the main dealer to check them!

For what it's worth ... I made the decision to start doing my own maintenance after quotes for service checks scared me. These days I have the tyres changed when they get too worn - I change the oil myself every 4000km - changed the air filter element and seal at 31,000km and ... not a lot else (apart from regular lighting & brake wear checks).

It's still on the original belt - original brake pads - original clutch plates - and it still goes just as well as the day I bought it (2 years 4 months & 31,000km ago).

I've got a spare belt and clutch plates/weights "just in case".

I reached the conclusion that if I had everything done by the dealer that was supposed to be done by the dealer (when it was supposed to be done by the dealer) then it was going to add up to a LOT of money - and I really just couldn't see the value in it. I reached the conclusion that a lot of what they do just doesn't need to be done every time eg checking the valve timing; it's a real mission to do it (a lot of things have to be taken off) and when I checked with the owner of another bike shop (friend of a friend) he said "it's not a particularly high-revving engine" and "couldn't see a need for it to be checked every time". I do monitor how much oil she burns though - 60ml in 4000km last time which I thought was just fine.

Basic difference in philosophy I think; the dealer charges a lot of money to do things so it (in theory) never breaks down between services whereas my philosophy is to run the components until they give me an indication that they've reached the end of their service life. I think a lot of parts get changed far more often then they need to be - which seems to benefit the dealers far more than it does us.

Couldn't agree more.

Although alternative opinions are available :lol:

It's encouraging to know that a PCXs engine can last that long. My PCX is at 13860 miles. I have put 6k miles on it since I purchased it used 9 months ago.
I also do all the maintenance on my PCX, save quite a bit of money over the long run.

I'd be interested if anyone has ever managed to wear a well-maintained one out.
