Affirmative, there were several things done to the 575M different from the 550 that have enhanced longevity. Sintered steel valve guides, steel connecting rods, Mannesmann-Sachs shocks and actuators, coil on plug ignition (no high voltage through spark plug wires), improved cooling system (same radiator, better shroud and pump internals/pulley), etc. have all contributed to longer life of the drivetrain components.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
