09 450 xcw hours?

Is 175 hours (7500km) lots for these engines? Assuming it has been moderately ridden and maintained?

How far can this gen. engine go without major work?

buudys 08 450 went 600 hrs with just one piston change then a full rebuild.

I have an 09 KTM 450 xcw with 190 hrs and no engine parts replacements with no issues other than a little smoke here and there. Well maintained with oil changes every 10 hrs and clean air filters. Hope the trend holds.

If you don't have the dreaded oil transfer issue these engines seen to go on forever.
