There still does't seem to be much online regarding this..
I hear some people need to start replacing parts at 20k miles...
I hear others say that it should be fine up to 50k miles.

I haven't really heard many of us go over about 18 to 20k miles...

I am on about 17k at the moment, and will probably hit around 20k before the summer.
Which means by the end of the summer I will be beyond the known :p

Anyone have any idea what mileage our bikes last?
What mileage are you on?
Like I said, I am on 17 ish thousand, and am yet to have any issues with the engine.
ANd I trash it a lot.

nearing 15k now, no massive issues that couldn't have been prevented via proper maintenance.

Oh yeah, I service it!

Oil + filter every 2,000 miles.
Air filter whenever I can be bothered to clean it.
Reguarly put WD40 in the locks, and stuff like that.
Regular chain lubing...

That is about it really :)
Other than just generally cleaning etc.

Don't the piston rings or something need cleaning sometime around the 20k mark?

No, do a compression check, if you are concerned, but no leave them alone. Quality fuel looks after the top ring, Shell V-Power comes with lubrication to help the top ring, and good quality oil will look after the lower 2.

Which is better to use out of V-power And what i use now BP Ultimate?
Biased opinion, Shell V-Power, (did contract work for them offshore, now work at a Shell Garage), having stripped engines that have only been used with V-Power, all of which have very clean valves and combustion chambers.

I don't know...
Dunkirk had to replace SOMETHING at 20k miles, which cost him a fair bit of money :S
