Re: Lowering miles on a bike

Of course its possible so long as it has more miles than it did when it was last registered. Make sure you know who you're buying from and make smart, informed purchases.

This is what people do. Get used to it and buy bikes from people you know or roll the dice. I can't even count how many people have asked me to get them gauge clusters with less than 12k, but not more than like 6500, cause they registered the bike with 6500, and don't want to have to ride 2500 miles to make it legit when they sell it.

It happens all the time, and plenty of these bikes get wrecked early. Nobody has a clue what true mileage is on them. Closes thing you'll get is what it was registered at, and then the seller could have put 20k on her with a different scratched up shitty cluster, swaps em back and you're sad when valves need adjusting right away, etc.

Uhhhh....









Anyway, OP, just ride home backwards. Problem solved.


Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE

The problem was he wasn't treating me with respect. He was all mad about it for some reason and was disrespecting me in front of my friends. Had he been cool I would have helped him a bit.

Ok, I must admit that I've failed. I really should have created a new thread and linking to this one. I'm starting to feel bad trolling the OPs thread so I'll stop now.

Hopefully someone picked up on the fast and furious reference.

I think that one went over (under?) everyone's head. I hope that means you didn't actually swap a gauge cluster and rip some dude off and then got pissed about it when he called you out on it.

It'd be nice if they buried the electronics that tracked mileage in the actual motor somewhere, instead of the freakin' gauge cluster, which takes all of 20 minutes to swap. There's always a way to cheat it, but if you had to say, split the cases to do it, it'd happen a lot less. You'd also have the added bonus that if you swapped a motor, you'd have the new accurate mileage for it.
