Wow! I thought I was doing good when my '07 1K got 35K miles on the original. I had it in at the dealer for the 30K service and they said it was still in spec and OK. At 35K, I chickened out and replaced it.
I'm a pretty easy rider (most of the time) and no wheelies, so that probably helped. I used 80-140 synthetic gear oil most of the time. I kept the slack at about 1 inch on the centerstand.
BTW - nice play on words.
