Default Like a swiss watch...

2005 750 just rolled over 99,999 (kilometers) this past weekend. Still going strong! No oil burning, still a sweet ride.

I found a thread about resetting frozen odometers here, and one of the members (Backmarker) put me onto a crew in Melbourne who might be able to help. I hope to hear from them in the next day or two. Be great to see if Backmarker was still around so I could thank him!

Does it stay full of 9s instead of flipping back to all 0s? I always thought they would just keep on rolling.

My bike is coming up on 18k miles. She had 12k when I got her in the late summer of 2013. I would like to have more, but spend way to much time saving and waiting for repairs.

Beyond that, I have to leave her in the garage to save fuel; otherwise I tend to drain the tank every day. Better mileage than a car or truck, but too many extra miles simply for the enjoyment.

Pre Kats have mechanical odometers. Should just roll to 000000 and keep
On going. Post Kats have digital ones. They don't reset. They just stop working...

Exactly Shpielers: Mine is a post-cat with digital odometer, and it's frozen on all 9's. Even the trip meters are pooched. Since I use this bike for work and claim my mileage for tax, I need to get this sorted. I've got a line on an instrument shop in Melbourne who claims they can fix it. I just need to take the instrument cluster out and sent it to 'em. I'm looking for alternative solutions, but for about $150 plus postage I should be able to get this hiccup sorted.

I know what you mean, Prymal, but my bike isnt' just my primary transport, it's my relaxation and my therapy. I've put a lot of those kilometers on my bike travelling around Oz, and most of them just running the bike as a commmuter. I love that it just won't quit!

20K I think... not sure since the last owner replaced the speedo, runs like it's only got 20K though. Perfect Compression on all 4 cyl but the clutch is a little worn.
