If you check your primary adjustment shoe and your cam shoes at the suggested intervals, change the oil with a good synthetic at 5000-6000 miles, run a good transmission oil like Redline shockproof, you should get 80,000 to 100,000 miles easy.

I am sitting at close to 50k. I do the maintenance and everything runs smooth. I just put cams in it today and am waiting on getting my heads back.

no reason you shouldn't approach 100,000 with no major issues , my buddy did 124000 with only a cam issue around 85000

Haven't seen any big-mile 103's come in here, but had a 95" with over 180,000 on it once.
124" in Syracuse, NY, with over 137,000 on it

My 2012 RGU started life as a 103. I immediately added the Big Bore Kit to make it a 110, but the bottom end is still the same.

It's got SE255 cams, SE110 heads, SE Race Tuner, SE Heavy Breather, and the V&H Power Duals w/Hi Output Slipons.

52K miles and no major problems. Lost a stator, but that was an easy fix under warranty.
