Swapping Speedo's

While getting rid of my fairing and mounting a new "Baja" type headlight I also
removed the dashboard (now I can see down my fork tubes) and will be replacing
it with a TrailTech Voyager.
I found how to import the mileage from my old speedo to the new LCD Voyager but
started to wonder how legal this would be to do it myself.

I read about replacing odometers here in Pennsylvania and I saw something about a form to
fill out. Can't find it in my history though.
Another page says
"If an odometer is repaired or replaced, Pennsylvania law requires the odometer to register the same mileage as before the repair or replacement. If this is not possible, the new odometer must be set to 0 and a notice affixed to the left door frame of the vehicle by the vehicle owner (or his agent) specifying the mileage prior to repair or replacement and the date the odometer was repaired or replaced.

Soooo, could I just change the mileage myself and save the old speedo?
State inspection is coming up in september and I don't need any extra hassles and plan to keep my mouth shut, only answer if questioned.
I doubt the guy at the inspection place would remember what dash it had last time but the Voyager will
be stinky new.

I'm going to make a steel plate dash to mount the Voyager and also need to put Neutral +turn +high beam indicator lights as well as some switches for extras down the road.

Anyone ever have problems with inspection mechanics, the law or title transfer problems
after swapping speedo's?

Wow swapping speedometers LOL your thread title was a little scary haha. Your mileage is recorded every year when the bike gets inspected. As Long As You Are recording the accurate mileage you should have nothing to worry about.

LOL I had to think about the title then it hit me. Ewww
But no nothing like that.

Every year in Pennsylvania you have to get your vehicles registered with the state.
When you fill in your info they always want the mileage so that's another way you can't falsify
mileage, well you could but anyone with an electric drill can just.....

Got the Voyager all installed today. Just have to measure the front wheel's diameter and run setup.
After I enter the tire math I'm guessing holding down the joystick which I think will put me in the menu.
Found this on different forums, starts with a Vapor and ends with a Voyager. I dunno.



Vapor ODO reset
"Press and hold all three buttons down for three seconds to enter the data setting mode. Once there using the mode button progress to the tire size. At the tire size enter 9110 using the left and right had buttons to increment the digits. Immediately after entering the new tire size press and hold the right hand button down for three second. This should move to a screen with ( 12HR ) flashing on it. If this is displayed you are in the permanent data set so any alterations will be saved to the permanent information. Once in this data set again using the mode button move to desired screen in this case the screen that reads ODO for odometer. Finally using the left and right buttons again alter the ODO to desired mileage. Once complete you can either wait for five seconds and let the Vapor revert back to the main screen or you can use the mode button to reach the main screen. Resetting the proper tire size is not needed since the Vapor with automatically default back to the values you had set prior to this adjustment."

and that didnt work. Tire count only goes up to 3 so 9110 ain't happening.

I saw there is a menu in the user settings that needs a password.
Guess I'll call tech support monday unless somebody knows the password.
