Hi - just had a compressor seize on a QP M139 with 68,000 miles on clock. Is this usual? Anyone any idea how many miles these are usually good for?
Thanks
Baz

They are weak and don’t last long so you’ve done well. The one on my Strad went at 22k miles, it’s the same as the QP one.

Mine was grumbly in my GS at 48k. I think they have to handle such a big range of engine speeds and work from idle to 7000 rpm plus that they get a bit grumpy.

At least on the QP / GTS you don’t have to take the exchaust manifold off!

Mine lasted all the way to 50k - the nut holding the clutch to the spindle sheared. The new part was only about £250 + regas if IRCC
