as long as its running ok, you dont need to worry. hondas are known to go way more than twice that many miles. change the oil regularly, and get a tune up done, and it should be fine.

if honda is known for anything (other than its cars's tunability...it seems like honda had engine swapping in mind when they started getting big) its their reliability. i wonder who has the honda with the most (confirmed) miles on it

if your that concerned about your engine then get it rebuilt and happily watch your meter legally roll down to 000000. aside from that, to build a great engine youd need good sleeves and rebuilt engine parts anyways
