13+ Daytona 675, odometer rollback.

I came across an ad for a 2013 Daytona 675, it's very cheap and the bike condition kind of matches the price. Has been lowsided and looks like it was left out in the sun for a while, the windshield is either sun burnt or has a thick layer of dirt in it, but looks like a pretty good starting point for a track bike.


Either way, the bike has very low miles; I'm always wary when I see something like that. On japanese bikes you can just get a cheap speedometer from e-bay with low miles, plug it in and instant low milleage bike. I don't know much about the electronics on these, is the ECU tied to the speedometer making a speedo swap/rollback harder?

Yes, the entire instrument cluster is tied to the ECU. However, It IS possible to get a different cluster to work, IF it is the same generation. A 2013-2014 might work, but either way, it won't be cheap. My guess is, it is legitimate.

I don't want to know how it is done; just if it is as ridiculously easy as it is on Japanese bikes. I've seen many basketcases with ridiculously low mileage that just don't make sense, I usually check all wear spots and parts to confirm the odo is somewhat accurate; but I don't waste my time when the pictures don't make sense.


I think I'll go check out the bike.


Are 2015 bikes different? I thought they were the same thing from 2013 all the way to 2017.
