That would technically be illegal. They are made to not be tampered with. That is called clocking. Try to see what the dealership says. They might be able to make some kind of entry on your title to adjust for it. To keep the value of your bike. Don't really know to be honest.

    It's only "clocking" if you were dishonest and made it less mileage than what your bike really has. If you put the same exact mileage back on it, you're just fixing the problem. He didn't ask how to turn it back so he can decieve someone when selling's for his own personal use.

If it's not digital, it's possible, but you have to carefully disassemble the entire speedometer assembly & odometer to do it. I did the same to my 1981 Suzuki GS850 replacement speedometer that had more miles on it than my bike did.

No it will not. You probably don't NEED to rejet at all. If the manufacturer suggests it for your bike and pipe combination I would follow their advice. If they do not suggest it I would use a dyno to get the best performance from your new setup. Keep in mine your new exhaust only lowers the back pressure. You haven't changed the intake parameters at all as far as airflow. So any additional air going into the cylinders due to your new exhaust will only be because of the reduced volume in the cylinder while the intake valve is open. This is a rather small amount, so don't get all crazy and jump several jet sizes at once.

You will most likely find that your Air Cleaner element is blocked & possibly may have sucked up some leaves reducing air flow.

SOURCE: 2002 Yamaha Vstar 1100 Custom. STARTER Problem

The starter button is used in an open circuit design.
You must press the starter button to "Close" this circuit before the starter will engage. Taking the starter button out of the loop helps support the suspect short. Assuming you kept the starter button wires from touching. :) If not, it is most likely the starter button.

Trace the wires coming from the starter button.
There could be a short circuit. (Same as pushing the starter button). Check along the handle bars and anywhere rubbing could cause a break in the insulation. Try this at night with the lights off.
You may be able to SEE the spark and locate it quickly.

Good luck!

1999 jimmy odometer stopped working

My guess would be a bad connection at the harness for the cluster, or a problem with the printed circuit board inside the cluster.

Just purchased a 08 r1 and cant get the milage to show up

One button is the "select" with which you change from ODO to TRIP and back. And the other button is "reset" to reset your TRIP meter.

Cant find where the mileage is stored

This is right from GMC service repair manual
The vehicle odometer is calculated and stored electronically in the instrument panel cluster (IPC). The base IPC contains a season odometer and a trip odometer. The uplevel IPC contains a season odometer and two trip odometers. Momentarily press the trip/reset switch on the IPC in order to toggle between the season odometer and the trip odometer. Press the trip/reset switch for greater than 2 seconds, while the trip odometer is displayed, in order to reset the trip odometer.
The IPC calculates the mileage based on the vehicle speed signal circuit from the engine control module (ECM). The odometer will display 'error' if an internal IPC memory failure is detected. The odometer displays either miles or kilometers as requested by the activation of the Personalization button on the steering wheel controls.

Just bought a 2002 saturn vue and just realized a day later that the odometer resets back to 89083 every time you shut the car off and the trip. back to 0.0 everytime.

Wow, that's VERY uncommon one. GM gauge clusters on newer vehicles have battery backups that retatin the data indefinately. When ordering a replacement cluster from GM you have to provide them with the milage, so the nw one can be programmed to match what is also stored in your PCM.

I would say either the backup circuit in the cluster failed, or someone figured out how to disable it so they wouldn't run up any milage.

A GM dealer should be able to pull up the vehicle's actual milage from the Computer and sell you a replacement cluster.
