OK so I bought a 02 V-ROD and a friend of mine caught something I didn’t see before. He said the front and rear tire of my bike looks worn out more than the 1,800 miles on it. How could he be so sure i asked myself????
He sells tires for a living. NOW IM CONCERNED??
Is there a way you can disconnect the mileage reading off of one of these bikes? If so - HOW....???
That way I can check for loose connections and tampering around the area where it can be done. I spoke to the guy who I bought the bike from and he denied it of course. I ran a carfax and a DMV D.O.L. which revealed a clean good mileage history.
So, my only thing now is to see what I can get from this forum.
Thanks

It was probably just ridden pretty hard. The only way to stop the odometer is to remove the fuse that works the instrumentation. I've never done this, but it works on cars so I'm assuming it would work on a bike too.

Pull your cluster out or exchange it with another and ride all you want. The milage is recorded on the cluster. However 3k is all I got out of my first set of tires so if they are about half worn that would be about right if they ride like I do.
