Hi,
I had a really bad thing happen to me this summer. Some idiot put a handful of sand in my oil. It completley clogged up the oil pump which intern siezed one of the cam shafts and it snapped...:mad:
The best solution was to replace the motor instead of the hours it would take to clean the motor and maybe find more damage.
I did find another motor, a 1991 1100 with only 4,200km. My damaged motor had 12,500km. Is there anyway to update my odometer to replect the mileage of the replacement motor?
My bike is a 2005 1100 Vstar classic..
:(

Matbe do it the old fashion way with a drill. Connet the cable to a drill motor and let it fly. A couple of hours and it should be to whatever milage you would want.

In the old days, unscrupulous car dealer used this method to turn the odometer back a few thousand.
Good luck and ride safe

I don't believe there is any way to 'mechanically' change the odometer reading. If there is it would require the connection to a computer.
