That really depends on riding style, maintenance, and quality of the motorcycle. I had a 1999 Harley Davidson Road King Classic which I traded in 2005 with 137000 miles (220480 km) and it was running like it was new. Like any other motorized vehicle.... proper maintenance.

I hv activa for 2006 model,my daily travel is almost 50 kms perday - 6days in a week, from last 6 months Activa started giving starting problem and last week white smoke started coming out while drivi

White smoke is classic head gasket problems in water cooled engines ... Your engine is air cooled but you can still have top end troubles. I suggest you have your motorcycle checked by a professional before you ride much more. info on your ride here:

How long does a chain normally last on a sport bike, katana 600,

It all depends on the quality of the chain and sprockets, how it is looked after and how the bike is ridden. I have known them last from 25 minutes to 10,000 miles. If you replace the chain you should replace the sprockets as well ( the chain will last longer.)

Best tires for 1982 GL1100?

Yokohama Speed Line are the best performance for the money. They provide a smooth ride, especially for older bikes without computer tuned suspension. they also stick well to the road, wet or dry, and work best for touring motorcycles, lasting a good long time. Continentals are to motorcycles what Radial TAs are to cars. They are really nice tires, but they are a lot softer, so they don't last as long, certainly for touring. they would be my second choice, because they stick well, and look great.

Rough idiling

21,000 is a lot of miles for a motorcycle spark plug. Your valves might need adjusted - I don't know if Kawasaki has solids or hydraulic in this model. Your carbs might be in need of adjustment. When was your last tune up? If you don't remember, it is time for a little TLC for the bike, my friend. Your motorcycle is 9 years old now ... it is time for service.
