My brother is looking at the gl1200's. He is wanting to know how many miles people are getting before having to rebuild the motor. I have 90,000 on mine

Gave up my 12 back in '96 for a GL15 so can't say what to expect out of the GL12 motor, others here may. Currently have just short of 120K on my 2000SE and expect it to go much further. There are lots of high mileage wings out there, maintenance records would be the key to how comfortable you might be purchasing a high mileage bike, but in a nutshell, the wing motors are very strong and dependable if cared for properly. Good luck.

Based on opinions of many 1200 riders they say 200,000 miles is not unheard of!

I know of one that had 265,000 plus on it when it lost oil pressure, the oil pump was replaced and he put a bunch more miles on it then trade for a 1500 got rid of that with over 300,000 miles on it now has an 1800 the last time I talked to him he had almost 200,000 on it but that was last summer. But a lot depends on how well they are taken care of.
