well I thought that was illegal, butttttttt

Let me ask this, if the MPH is off, wouldn't this count for the miles to be off also? Meaning if it says I am doing 90 mph and really doing say 81, wouldn't I be adding 9 miles per hour to my actual?

What is your purpose? If it's just to show less mileage on the bike, its illegal to roll back and they make it pretty hard to do so. I'm sure there's an unscrupulous used bike salesman who might know how, but we average amateur mechanics probably don't participate in these practices.

If it's to deal with an incorrect speedo or mph calculation, there are methods to deal with them. Let us know what you want to do.

So you join and as your first post on this enthusiasts forum, you want to know how to defraud someone with a false odometer reading?
The ONLY possible reason for wanting to roll-back an odometer is to sell a vehicle and defraud the purchaser by mis-representation.


I mean, really now...... do you expect any HONEST Burgman owner here to help you?
Count me OUT!!!!

^^^ I'm with all the above. You just joined and yet you have the nerve to ask us for such a dishonest favor? Most of us here have been here a long time, and from my dealings and conversation with members on here, they seem to be a good law abiding bunch. I myself am a volunteer with the local police department, so I certainly could not support any unlawful activity. So please do not ask or infer any illegal activity.

I'd just ride it until it turned over.

Might take a while.

Yep. Might take a while. You'd have to go 1 million miles, and at 100 miles an hour that would be 416 24-hour days. And at 50 miles a gallon and 2 dollars a gallon, that's only $40,000 worth of gas. Or you could give me the $40,000 and the old bike and I'll get you a nice newer bike with low miles.

No idea the OP's intent. But just playing devils advocate here, I could think of a scenario where the original bike was in an accident and the odometer was replaced and he wanted to make the replacement match original mileage... far fetched maybe, illegal maybe...not necessary..... but it's possible

I know a guy that his Speedo went bad on his bike, so the dealer replaced his instrument cluster with a new one. Not sure how many miles were on it at the time, but it was near a year old. So now he is back to new bike mileage, legally.

lets not jump to contusions here, there might be a reason, give the man a chance to make his case , no need to be suspicious just because you come home to find a man in the house with no pants and wifey is all flustered, she might have been measuring his inseam for new britches , or measuring something else
