You beat me by a month! I like that you show I can easily get another 50,000 miles.

I get the feeling that if you change the oil and filters (oil & air) when you should, these bikes will travel as many miles as you ask of them.

Did you encounter some mechanical issues in the last 40000 km? Mine is approaching 100000 km...

Be the change you want to see.

Well, I won't be buying the beer. Mine is an '07. Yup, I was late to the party.

The bike burns some oil, I've done the fuel filter bypass and I repaired a fuel leak at the injectors - not uncommon issues. Just recently my fuel gauge is always showing a full tank, even when nearly empty - not so common...

Otherwise, it has been a great bike.

New to the forum and first post so not up on the forum protocol. I have a 2004 Wee with a build date of 10/03 and last six of VIN are 100091, so maybe it's the 91st bike built. Mine is not currently running unfortunately but I am in the process of bringing it back from the dead and I looking for some guidance. I will find the appropriate forum and post more there. I sincerely hope to come back to this forum and report a running Wee soon.

rooman, you don't indicate your location. You might find local help if folks know you are close.

Thanks for the tip - I live in Wichita KS. BTW, I kept working on the issue and as of 9:48 pm central time the bike will start and run!! Now I need to replace chain/sprockets and brakes/fluid. Also need to figure out anything else that needs attention. Already replaced plugs, air filter, oil and coolant.
THE BIKE RUNS AGAIN!!!

Cool. You needed less help that perhaps implied. Enjoy the revitalized Wee.

You could ride it to the Cache rally in Colorado next year in June and we could improvise a shrine to the antiquity. Maybe even buy you a beer.
