How many miles can you put on a Majesty?

Postby scooterman45 » Thu Aug 17, 2006 1:47 01

Hi, I had a person that owns a Majesty scooter and knows someone that has the same kind of scooter that has over 250,000 miles on it he said. Do any of you know people that have this many miles on their scooter?


Thanks, Scooterman

with proper maintenance, there is no reason that i can see, that the maj
could not get to this sort of mileage figure.

250,000? - well, maybe. 100,000- I'd put money on it.
Modern Japanese engines are amazingly reliable. I have a friend with a Magna 750 with over 140,000 with only routine maintenance and oil changes which he does himself.
The Majesty has all the right ingredients for a long lasting engine:
- water cooled - prevents hot spots and overheating
- a real oil filter - as opposed to screen type filters like the Honda Helix
- an oil cooler (it's an internal coolant to oil cooler)
- an unstressed engine - you CANNOT leave the line with the engine
at 8,000rpm like you could if it had a standard transmission and clutch.

The one REALLY worrisome thing is one member posted his piston skirts were breaking up. Let's hope he got a bum piston instead of the metallurgy of ALL the Majesty pistons being off - Honda had problems with the camshafts of their early 90's 750 V-4 engines - the steel was too soft and the cam lobes "wiped". This is the real wild card.
The Majesty has forged pistons which are the strongest type...if one more member reports fracturing skirts I fear we are DOOMED :shock:

- something to think about I read a long time ago - an internal
combustion engine BURNS gasoline, it RUNS on oil - use a high
quality oil and change the oil and filter often. Also change your
COOLANT at least every 2 years - it has anti-corrosion chemicals that
wear out over time. Lastly, fuel injectors get clogged. Every once in
a while run some fuel injector cleaner with a tank of gas - RedLine
and Chevron Techron are proven brands. These will also clean
your intake valves, combustion chamber and piston dome.

- I live in Florida where I can ride year round. If you live up north and
have to store your scoot for months get one of the articles on
how to prepare for storage - this is really really important and will
add many thousands of miles to the Majesty's life.

This guy that told me about knowing a man that has 250,000 miles on his scooter also lives in Florida and he said this man is 91 years old believe or not.

If you looked closely at the pic he provided ... that scoot was rode hard and put up wet ... filthy to boot. I saw up under my scoots' skirts ( :oops: ) and it looked squeaky clean with 8,000 miles.

In any case, only time will tell, but I would be surprised if this motor didn't last longer than any of the owners would care to keep it, so long as it is well maintained and not abused.

I have 52,000km on my 2005 Majesty. I have had issues with the transmission needed washer and clutches partly my fault. This year I failed the diaphram. I think the engine will run for a very long time. I use amsoil synthetic . I hope to get250,000km somehow.

I know that when I had a Helix, riders in the "Scoor-Tours" mag talked of having 160K miles without engine work.
1. '05 Majesty bought new in Aug. 06: $5000
2. Yamaha taller windshield
3. Yamaha passenger back rest
4. Side leg deflecters
5. Mirror extenders
6. Dr. Pulley Slider weights, 14 grams (disappointed, no real change)
