Odometer issues
« on: October 24, 2021, 04:06:33 pm »
Hit 16,000 miles and all of a sudden it's no longer tracking my miles properly. The trips will work and track correct mileage. I can go 30 miles on trip and main odometer will only mark 3 or 5 miles.

What do I do now?

Yo don't say where you are located but I doubt you have to do anything at all to it.  Since both your trip meters work, just leave one un-reset so you can track your total milage.  You don't say whether your meter is OEM (original equipment manufacture) or an aftermarket like a Kosometer.  If it is OEM, and you like it, you can probably buy one from a Koso meter fan, and avoid exhorbitant dealer prices.  Or if you like the Koso meter, now would be the time to get one.

that is a nuisance - write down mileage, use TRIP Meter to track your additional miles
(1) i have STOCK Speedometer for sale - approx 5,300 miles - ask Yamaha dealer if they can reset it to your mileage
(2) buy a KOSO meter (it has ability to SET the mileage on it) buy NEW thru ebay $290, other person, or KOSO $365
(3) i bought KOSO meter
