So, I have my '01 929 in a state of disassembly, as I am cleaning it. I turn the power on, with the body-plastics off, and check my status, you know, as the parts go back on, as I have had some problems with cooling-fan switches, lost keys, brake-bleeding, etc...

So, I look down, and low and behold: ODO, not the trip ones mind you, but the ODO itself, was reset to zero. Freaking zero.

People:
WTF!?

now thats odd, I thought they have some kind of internal memory that can't be reset....:idunno:
I know!

I feel really squirrely about it. I can't sell the bike like, ever, now...Nobody will believe the mileage...

Maybe it's an internal malfunction of some sort with the gauges? I would send the gauges off to this company that calibrates the mileage for like $40 fee.

I can't remember the url address but someone here should. If you remember the mileage they can set it back to that.

That is a good idea...Unfortunately, because I have to "remember" the actual mileage, whether or not I send it in, and would have to disclose that I did in fact send it in to be recalibrated, why not save the $40 plus shipping and skip the middle man? No matter what I am sorta screwed on the issue...I would never get top-dollar in a sale now...

I've been going through stator hell and my battery has been in and out so many times I'm thinking about putting a hinge on the drivers seat. Through all of this the ODO has retained it's memory. Did you make any electrical connections in the instrument panel with the battery connected?

While his stator suffered no ill effects from the recalled tainted Chinese gas, the odometer fell violently ill and suffered irrreversable memory loss.

Zero miles, baby...

No, really between 16,500 and 17,000...I have not really been riding it too much, and the last time I changed the oil was at 16,500..That was at the end of April, and was the last group of days I really rode the 929...I have been '51-ing it to try to learn the new bike, but so it goes. I don't have any intention of selling it...I regret selling every car, drum-kit, and motorcycle I ever have sold in the past, so this one is staying around...I was just editorializing on the implications of a spontaneously-reset odometer on a hypothetical resale...I have no intentions to sell at this time. I am selling a small auto gps unit, but that is another matter.
