I had over twice the miles that you have on my 07 when I got rid of it in 09, no problems at all. As long as its stock you should be ok.

You may want to check the crank.

The only thing you should have to be on the lookout for anytime soon is the inner primary bearing. If you are hard on the throttle maybe a little sooner than someone who is not so hard. Seems from what I have read anywhere between 15K and 25K. Just did mine at 22K.

I agree.
The 2007 model year cranks were more prone to "sissoring" than those of the later years, at least from we've seen here.
2004, and 2005, 88"ers also.

If you have any concerns I would bring it to a local Indy or dealer you trust and have them go over the bike.
Thats would be my OP
Thanks

Well I only have 15,900 miles on it and the only upgrades it has are rush slip-ons, screaming eagle heavy breather, and a remap or reprogram... I am not out beat the piss out of it or win quarter miles drags... I talk to my mechanic a few days ago and he said more than often this happens when people build this big awesome motor on top of a factory crank...

My buddy also said the same about the factory compensator with stock small mods it will perform fine, but once high performance nods are installed he suggests the SE compensator.
