Just incase you don't know, Yamaha don't just make musical instruments and bikes, they also make engines for cars such as Toyota, Lexus and VolvoWow, that's alot of miles. I'm curious what the average life span of an R3 engine is with normal street riding and commuting.
I feel you, I think it was like my second week of ownership and one day went out riding and dropped the bike twice on the same day. Have a little knick in the fairing sticker on the left-hand side and a minor scratch on the exhaust. Drove me nuts too as I told myself that I wouldn't ever let the bike fall. Oh well, minor cosmetic damage hardly noticeable and I don't really think about it unless I see it but hey you live and learn. Guess I got my bike drops out of the way, hopefully no more in the future.Nearly 4000km. Dropped her a couple of times now. Minor scratches on mirrors, indicators and exhaust and painfully a little nick on the fairings. Break lever slightly bent, end of clutch lever snapped. Most of the bits I'm planning on replacing anyway, but the two little fairing scraps are going to bug me forever.

Nothing's worn out, and the bike is kept outside (but covered, always). The repack of the grease for the swingarm pivot I chose to do simply because the maintenance schedule book says to do so. :nerd: . One should always follow the maintenance schedule.......dealer charged 1,5h labour for the job.wow:chatterbox you have the most I've seen so far! You have a 2015 bike? Have you had to replace anything? Any bearings wear out besides what you mention?
