In normal use without being raced, abused or mistreated, probably the life of the bike. if the rider frequently burns out on their bike, or is a very aggressive rider, not nearly as long as the gentle rider.

I don't do a lot of burn outs but I am fairly hard on a bike in general with lots of track days and wheelies. With that being said, I have replaced clutches with less than 10k while my Monster has 30k on the original clutch.

My '04 R6 had 18.5K on it and the cutch still seemed good. I didn't beat the bike, just ran it high RPM's occasionally when I push it.

When you have no more go go juice... check to see if the clutch still works.

or

When you put it in gear and let the clutch out and it go no where. Check your clutch!



On a serious note... Average 10k-20k miles. There is simply too much to consider especially sense the sportbike clutches soak in motor oil!!!!
