Miles and Hours...

I am a long time Honda owner and never experienced a issue of engine failure with anyone of my machines. I am, however, curious with good "maintenance" (let's assume within the limits of the manual and no abuse/swimming, etc.) what does one expect out of a Honda in terms of hours on a ATV? I see these 300's, etc., out there and really curious about how many hours of good service one might expect. My gut tells me 3000-4000 hours with excellent service, but interested in thoughts on this concept.....

My rancher has had moderate service, never sunk, never ran at WOT for long periods, just a farm bike. I think the last time I looked at it, it was just past 14,000kms and about 1400 hours. It's just starting to smoke a bit now. Motor has never been touched on it. I think if a guy was a bit more particular about the maintenance on it you could maybe push it to 2000-2500hrs, but beyond that. I'm not sure. Depends on the machine/engine too. Every model is different.
