I just changed the oil today after 3000 miles, and it looked almost clean. Total miles are 15300.

How many miles can you expect to get out of the 750 V4?

I would say as long as you perform routine maintenance, you should be able to get at least 100,000 miles, if not many more.

The most important thing you can do to prolong engine life is change the oil regularly. I change it at 3000 miles. Read the owners manual and follow the recommended maintenance schedule.

This includes things like valve clearance, coolant, spark plugs, air filter, chain & sprockets, tires, fork oil,

brake fluid, brake pads & shoes, and others.

Thank you for responding to my post. Now I'm going riding!

Update: 3-20-14

The 96 Magna now has 18900 miles and still runs excellent. I put on a new rear tire last summer at 17800.

I plan on taking it out of the garage from winter storage this weekend. I'm sure the battery is still good because I put the battery tender on it overnight every couple weeks.

I purchased a 05 FJR 1300 last summer while on vacation and sold the 02 FZ1 in Feb.

I have no plans to sell this Magna anytime soon.

I've owned it for 10 years -- how time flies!

I have a 97 VF750 with 87,000 on the meter. Starts on the first crank.

Ride a couple hundred miles a week. This 'Black Beauty' and I (at 75) are going to finish our rides together. I know it will make 100 thou, and I would take a bet on 150 thou.

I own a 96 Magna, and I fell in love with it the first time I rode it. It's an extremely well rounded machine. The bonus is it's a bullet proof Honda rocket ship. The answer to your question my friend is 100,000+ miles if you love her a lot, and maybe 70,000+ miles give or take if you are abusive. They are very tough, and pretty forgiving. I give it 9.8 stars outta 10.
