120K on a GSR?

w/ regular maintenance and not beating on it all the time you can keep it running to 200K. I say repeat the 60K maintenance - plugs, wires, oil change, tranny fluid change, adjust valves, set timing, dist cap/rotor

Hah. My Accord had 180K on it before I sold it to my cousin a couple of years ago. It's still running strong today.

if u didn't do the 90k service then you should do that
but if u did already...then you got alot more miles

maybe blue print your engine, and carbon clean all the deposits
flush all the fluids, new clutch, the ez things, all the metal parts
are still strong but the lil stuff might be worn...ringsss valves ect....

oh yeah i said that, cause im approaching 100k and its scary 50+ miles a day man
for skool

50+...please, i get about a month between oil changes. I drive way to damn much and i hate every minute of it. All previous servious has been done from the beginning up to the 90K service. Havnt adjusted the vavles in a long time which i should probably do and most likely will.

If you havent already changed these at 90,000: water pump, oil pump, wires, spark plugs, distributor cap, tranny fluid, brake fluid, clutch fluid. Good luck

Brilliant. So you're hoping your LS timing belt lets loose? Why not get a B18C and then SELL the LS motor?
