I've 55000km on the counter. Just had new front wheel bearings and the cardan leakage fixed.
Some dude told me that the clutch and camshaft should be replaced at this mileage. But I don't feel or hear anything unusual on the bike.

What's wisdom on this?
And what can I expect on upcoming technical issues?

Utter bullshit, camshafts (after rollerization) should last for the life of the bike, the clutch only needs replacing whet it starts to slip, clutch life is very dependent on driving style so no milage can be given for replacement.

I asked a Harley mechanic about clutch life. He said the life span is "1/4 mile to 50,000"

A Harley mechanic doesn't know shit about a GRiSO, life span can be anything between 20.000 and the day it starts slipping

Since it's already a roller bike, I don't feel like it should be a problem.
But just like leaking spokes, bearings that wear out and gasket that break, I would think some typical problems could occur after this mileage.
Since I want the motorcycle in the shop at the moment I don't need it, I rather like to do some things preventive instead of having things broken somewhere halfway Italy when I'm on vacation.

Well, if they haven't yet been done get the swingarm bearings ans shock linkage bearings greased and/or replaced if needed, fling a new alternator belt at it and get the forks and shock overhauled. I'm assuming it gets new brake and clutch fluid yearly.

Ah Klaas, I see you missed the joke... It's a great treatise on the (a)typical HD buyer.

Steak: I WAS a typical Harley buyer till I got my GRiSO! And that was exactly what the Harley mechanic said to me!
