Silly question...

So my Rc was given to me by my brother when he decided to stop riding, and that was at about 44k miles, with not so good but not terrible maintenance either unfortunately. Well the top or bottom of the motor is blown and I'm not an expert enough to rebuild the entire motor, maybe one day I'll rebuild it (20years).

So after finding out about my motor being blown, I purchased an 03 motor through eBay with supposedly 10k miles. No way I will know if it's true, but when I looked at if, it looked good. I've only put less than 2k miles on it and have had no issues on it. It rides good.

Long story short, sorry, can I change the mileage on the display manually so I. Can keep track of miles that's on the 03 motor that is installed. Makes it easier to keep track of oil changes and what not.

No way to change odo mileage from what I know. You can buy a used speedo with whatever mileage it has, or buy new with 0.

One of the few places I know that could do it but not sure if your circumstance will meet their criteria.

You will have to track your maintenance the old fashion way, just write it down or use an excel spread sheet as a conversion chart of sorts.

(Mileage on Odo) - (estimated on engine) = baseline difference.

Use excel to constantly track and automatically subtract the (baseline difference)...and you'll be able to easily track "actual" mileage.

2001 SP1 (sold)
2004 SP2 (properly stored)
2012 Ruckus (stolen)
2015 Grom (under construction)

Weyrauch pronounced (Y Rock)...Rock for short.

I would just do a maintenance early to make it a nice round number and go from there.

Actually, what madbuyer just put up there looks good.
