Monday, I turned over 33,333 miles on my Hornet. I bought "Lil Red" new 2years and 7 months ago.
Original chain and sprockets ( 17t a month after buying.) No slack pulling up on the chain around the rear sprocket.
I have 1,000 miles on my 4th set of tires~BT021.
One set of plugs, not needed.
Checked valves at 25,000 ~ right on the money and a waste of time.
Every time,(twice) I hooked up my battery tender, it showed fully charged.
I average about 46-48 mpg every time I top up.
I have never owned a vehicle that is as maintance free as "Lil Red"
I know the chain oiler, throttle lock, and the zerk fitting in the top stem race gags some folks, but, heck, they work.
A little bit of grease and oil goes a long, long way with machinery.
Hours of pleasure ~ priceless!
