Who has the most moles on their Ninja/Z400? Please chime in.
Z400TX got me think'in; how long will this engine last? Dun got an easy, trouble free 90,000 on my FJR, butt that things just idling at 80 mph. ('bout 4200 rpm)
The N/Z400 motor is rev'in more at freeway speeds, butt also has smaller, lighter reciprocating mass. Hummmmm......

Not quite 100K miles, but I finally turned 3,000 miles recently...LOL (I definitely need to ride more)

I have had zero issues other than the previously mentioned clutch slippage...

N1 (wife's N400) Oct '18 14k miles. She is a daily driver to work. No Issues at all.
N2 (my N400) Dec '18 4,800 miles. No issues at all. She is a bit like my dog's eyes looking for for me to give her a treat, desperate to go for a thrashing!!

Kawasaki makes some pretty strong engines. I put 115,000 miles on my 2006 Ninja 650 and it was running fine when I sold it. There were some peripheral problems like fuel pump failure, stator failure, and a couple of water pump seal failures but the core engine burned no oil between 5,000 miles changes. I expect the 400 should be good for at least 80,000 if not abused.

Had 30k on my Ninja 300 when I traded it in for the Ninja 400. It was running really well, no oil needed between changes, and no reliability issues at all. I'm anticipating the 400 will be just as good, and can't see any issues as long as you do regular oil changes, maintenance and servicing.
