    i'm curious if anyone on this site owns or knows of any fairly high mileage Stelvio's between the 75,000 and 100,000 mile range?

    I'm a bit over 49k miles on my 2013 Stelvio and its running better than ever. Doesn't use a drop of oil either.

    Can only claim 44,000 ... just had the roller tappet upgrade, all else OK. No oil burning, no clutch noise, hoping it will continue that way for a looooong time ...

    I have a 73k+mi '09 Stelvio, which has never guzzled any oil either. Still have the flat tappets; 2 left exhaust tappets & cam replaced almost exactly 3 years ago. It's been running great!

    No real excuses for being late to this party, 'cause I've been having lots of fun riding this, my other streetbike, and my recently acquired track bike :happy::devil:

    Thanks for posting the miles. As there are no dealers left within 250 miles of me, I have little prospect of getting my 09 Stelvio rollerized. Mine has 37,000 miles and I was just asking what anyone has experienced in terms of maximum miles with flat tappets. Hoping mine will hold together for as long as yours. Mine did spring the oil leak as a result of Guzzi not doing the groove right in the rear cover plate. That was a pricey fix and the dealer got so frustrated with it that he wouldn't help with the tappet problem. Since then, he has gone out of business. Good to know that at least one has survived that long with flat tappets. May I inquire as to your current mileage?

    Hi,
    I have 2008 bought new in 2010. Now the bike is 50k km with no big issues. Me and my workshop have checked few times data base of maintenance related to tappets issue. It looks like initial VIN bikes has good quality parts and were excluded from service action. My workshop is checking them every service and no issue with clearance etc.
    Regards,
    Sławek
