I can only give two odo meter readings as they are not my bikes:
1. Lady who does deliveries for takealot on her own Honda 125 e-storm. Clocked 118 000km.
2. Yamaha YBR 125. chemist delivery bike. The chemist who owns the shop and where the bike is stored lives across me. Just yesterday had a peak at the odo reading. Sitting on 110 000km.
Bl1ksem!
Even components of the Germans are Made In China.

When I buy again from takealot, I will take a pic of the bike and also the odo after I asked permission. Someone will just have to host for me as I cant access photobucket at work. The Yamaha will be useless as it resets back to 0km after it strikes 100 000km mark. When I looked it was on 10 000km.

I'm busy doing an engine rebuild on a Vespa S150 4T at the moment and it's speedo has clocked over, now sitting on 10,000km again! LOL
Motor was still running but had low oil pressure. Rev the bike up and the oil light goes off.
Had a look and the Main Crank Bearings are worn so looses pressure past the journals.

I'll edit this post shortly with a picture of it's dash with over 100,000km on it!  :popcorn:

Just another Kymco, of course  :yes: belonging to none other than Mr Robert Dean, of Cape Town.
He bought it new, 9 years ago, and has serviced it regularly since then.
It still pulls like an ox!
