There's a couple on this forum who have broken 100k. One reportedly has never even done the valve adjustments. Not recommended, but it just goes to show, these are reliable engines! I fully expect a well maintained 900 to cross over 100k without needing any major repairs. Just keep the oil changed, store it properly in the off season, and she'll treat you well.
Bought mine with 9k, rolling over 13k now, she's just a baby. People have their complaints about the 900, mostly stemming around it being a 900 (in other words, under powered, that sort of thing), but I doubt reliability will ever be one of them. Between this, and other forums, I just have yet to hear of anyone with catastrophic failures or any serious repairs being needed, outside of a wreck.
