Odometer reset?

Not really electrical, but I want to reset the odometer after the rebuild... Any idea how? Heard the front cap doesn't come off easy... Maybe a heat gun would help?

they are sealed for a reason, to prevent tampering or changing.

Well I can't necessarily go from 14k over the mark with a drill, it'd take forever...

I mean, I'll just write the miles on some tape under the speedo, but it's a matter of preference. I want to see 00000

Kinda illegal to do that. Go with the tape. Actually not illegal until you sell it.

its not illegal at at provided you disclose the information upon selling it. at least in alabama. I've tried to get in there on my old one that was busted and i'm fairly certain you aren't gonna manage it without some damage unless you are one patient and delicate mofo.

A drill will work, when I got my Chrome set of gauges on ebay, I wanted to match the mileage that was on the bike. Took a couple days at low RPM on the drill to take off about 3,000 miles. It actually burned up my black & decker, lol.

So it's a new motor?

You can't reset the odometer to zero unless it is.

"Rebuilds" don't count unless you replaced EVERY internal part with a new one...

Oh shucks... The old crankshaft is still in it. Guess it's not "new".

In my opinion, this motor has zero miles on it. It's not being sold to anybody (ever), so I don't care about what the odometer says. The dmv can suckakahk as far as I'm concerned, I'm not worried about paperwork.

You guys almost all digress. I know the legality of it.

Don't care.

New motor? Yeah, to me, it is. How others define what my motor is?

Don't care.

I figure 100mph for 15 hours would do it, or 50mph for 30 hours. Maybe I'll put the dremel on it...
