Loading a PCIII map resets odometer? - July 28, 2008, 11:33 AM

Just had a guy's friend I work with stop by with his newly purchased '03 SV1000. We were chatting about the bike, I inquired to the mileage on the bike. He said 6,000, but then he said the mileage was reset when they loaded up a new map on the PCIII and now the inidcator read only 400 and change. I don't know if the guy who bought it witnessed the reset or if it happened just before he got the bike.

I'd be suspect if I didn't see it happen myself. And I didn't take a look at the display, but now I guess there's a chance he is looking at one of the trip meters.

yea pretty impossible for that to happen...odometer memory is seperate from the bike...its in the housing of the speedometer for most modern bikes.

That's suposed to be physically impossible since the 2 systems have nothing to do with each other. The power commander has no access to the odometer. Wonder if someone had something embeded in the map that caused the ECU to throw it out to the odometer and it reset. If so we caould all be looking at some serious odometer tampering issues on bikes bought and sold all over the world!!!!

God Speed Jeff! You'll never be forgotten.

He's full of it or the person who told him he's full of it. You cannot change the mileage on the odometer. You can set the mileage one time...and that's it. Once it's set, it's set for good.
