sorry if this has been gone over before but i have searched the forum as best i could. my 02 748 big ends have worn out apperntly , at 24000 miles is this anywhere near normal. bike shop seems to think so. or do i have to look at the oil pump... last year ( 4 000 mls approx) 5 rockers were changed and some other top end works,£1200.00 or more would be pleased for any input.:

Not normal, bottom ends in these motors are pretty strong, big end failure usually is caused by something else like low oil pressure, dirty / contaminated / poorly maintained oil etc. It's not unheard of, but not the norm
Do you know its service history from new?
Where are ya BTW?
