Mileage

How much mileage on a sport bike engine is too high when considering buying a used bike?

50k. Maybe.

I was terse expecting others would fill in all the blanks but didn't happen. Mileage is really irrelevant. How the bike was ridden is far more important. Stunting is incredibly hard on a bike so that's an immediate area of concern and cause of price drop. Secondarily is track time. Track bikes get thrashed pretty nicely so they don't go as cheap as your average street bike.

Crashed is another reason for price drop.

You can find a good bike with 60K, and you can find a trashed bike with 2K. Like kanwisch said, the use of the bike is the most important factor to consider. If it's been a single-owner bike and they seem mature, then I'd say mileage shouldn't be a factor.

Do you have any specific bikes you're looking at ATM?
