I run a 2007 300 xc-w.  I can ride pretty aggressively for 2.5 hours on 10L of fuel.  So if I burned 250L of fuel I would be at around 62 hours on the bike....rough estimate.

 

But I stop lots to take in the scenery.  So that's based on total ride time and not actual run time........so run time may be much less.....

Pull the head and jug.   Have a look at the condition of piston and cylinder.  Measure bore and ring end gap.....

 

When you buy a used bike, and without honestly not knowing it's history, this will be the only way to have peace of mind.  Not sure about where you live, but can't take anyone at their word around these parts unless you know them and their maintenance habits...or get service records, receipts, etc...

A 300 should be good for 150 - 200 hours between pistons :thumbsup:

For some people.

You don't know if it sucked water or sand?

Only way to be sure with a used bike, is a teardown!

My grandfather's advice was, when buying used you're buying somebody else's headaches!

If you expect a issue prior to buying. Its no longer a surprise!

Exactly :thumbsup:   Generally speaking, buying a used bike and expecting to just jump on and ride....is a fairy tale expectation.  Gotta do the work.  If for nothing else peace of mind....
