I hit the 50k miles on my bike this past week. I bought my 01 Vstar 1100 Classic used in March 2013 with 1700 miles on it. That was 41 months ago and put 48,300 miles on it, averaging 1178 miles a month since I got it. I have not had a single mechanical issue once I flushed fuel system and rebuilt carbs from bike sitting for over 10 years other than voltage regulator. There has been regular maintenance performed as per owner's manual. On third set of tires, third set of brakes, new cobra exhaust two years ago, risers, new saddle bags, one voltage regulator, two batteries, remote oil filter, lowering link for 1 inch drop and a few other small things. Oh, forgot to mention the four badly timed flat tires I've had. I change oil every 4k using Valvoline 20-50 motorcycle oil. It sure does seem like I've changed oil more than 12 times but that is what the math says. I've never had to add oil between changes. K&N air filter I clean about once a year. About once every 4 to 6 weeks I do what I call my nut and bolt check. What I do is check every nut and bolt for tightness. It's amazing how quickly things can become loose, Houston roads are full of pot holes. When I'm tightening things up I clean everything good. I would like to know what year of bike you have, when did you get it, how many miles on it and any repairs other than regular maintenance items you have had to do. I'm doing this to find out about how much longer I can expect trouble free miles if I use the maintenance schedule. I put over 100k on a Honda CB750F in the 80's and expect that much plus on my Star.
