I found a RC51 for sale and the mileage pictured is 1/3 of what shows up on the carfax/autocheck,
How do I tell is the picture is of the actual odometer vs the trip odometer ?

The dash may have been swapped out. Not sure if the ECU or dash retains the mileage, but in either case, they can easily be swapped.

The Dash itself stores the mileage

That’s interesting because my odometer won’t store the trip meter . Everytime I start bike it’s reset to 0 . Wonder why that happens
this is usually a sign the battery is about to go, not properly connected, or getting weak in my experience

Battery ? Is there a tiny battery In the clocks to hold memory ???
...no the battery to the motorcycle, located under the steat.

The dash stores odometer in non-powered memory permanently. The tripmeter is not permanent, if you disconnect the battery it will zero (or if its low on charge etc.)

strange one so as I’ve a new battery and only noticed that happening after some major work including some wiring work. I must have a look into the wiring

There is a fuse labeled "odometer" that provides constant power to the dash

The wire for it is red/green and is prone to corroding in the large grey connector for the front harness

If the fuse is good check the connection in the grey connector. Pull the fuse before checking as this wire is constantly powered.
