How to Correct Odometer Reading?
No, I will not be sitting with my bike for 2 days with a drill.
I am surprised to find very little on the forums pertaining to correcting an odometer reading on the KLR. I assumed it would be a not uncommon issue for folks, but maybe I'm wrong. I lost my inner cable d/t a loose cable housing at the beginning of the 2nd half of a recent trip, and after ordering a new cable am now in need of a way to register quite a few miles on the odometer to bump it back up to the correct reading (specifically, 1,696 miles). I could find very little about whether this was even possible, much less the process. I found one person on the "other" forum talking about some ratcheting system for the number dials, but it made no sense to me.
Has anyone done this? Is it fairly easy to do? I am avoiding riding until I get the new cable on, and would like to put the correct reading on as soon as possible.
