OK! Whew! Long time since I last visited this post..
At this point my 1998 black B12 has at least 130,000 miles on it. Hard to tell exactly; I'm on my second speedo.
I went through a REPEATED motor-rebuild process in the past couple of years, trying to root-out naggy vibration issues, (turned out my JE pistons were worn after 90K on them!).
Great bike... +1 sprocket up front makes it feel like it has a Sixth gear...modified (flattened) Corbin to fit my ample beehind...JE 1216cc kit.. light headwork...Yosh RS-3 can.. Hyperpro shock, Progressive springs, Racetech kit... drag bars... Adaptiv TPX radar detector... NEP throttle lock... steel lines, wave rotors...
What's not to like? I just had it to the track in August...two years ago did 12,000 miles with it around the country in same config.
Now B12 has a baby brother: SV1000S, which fills-in for shorter, faster rides... ALSO modded with good suspension, etc.
A nice place to be
