    Lifespan of the Raptor 700 engine?

    Hello,

    I was wondering how many hours or miles the Yamaha Raptor 700 engine will
    last before you have to do an overhaul? Most interrested in miles and not hours actually :)

    Thanks!!

    wow this is a super hard question to answer. there are so many factory that come into play when trying to figure out how long these will last. will you be racing this? modding the motor? how you stay on top of servicing the engine. these motors are a great little motor and will last long if taken care of. how many miles where yo thinking before you need to rebuild? these engines aren't like 2 stroke engines

    yeah Im used to the 2 strokes. They are like ticking time bombs.
    I know 4 strokes isnt supposed to be that way, but Im kinda new to 4 strokes so Im just wondering. My engine is standard and has run about 6000 miles. Runs great though.

    Doing the big 3 in a couple of weeks now, so Im not sure to be worried or not :)

    2 strokes are indeed ticking time bombs if you don't know how to tune well. There's plenty of 80hp+ banshees that've been running 2-4 years on the same top end... It all depends on the tuning...
