Odometer maybe? Or you've got one hell of a rocket propelled 250r!

I know sometimes they can stick or roll back a number, but that seems like a lot of sticking. How far did you get while it was counting forward properly?

Always trust your cape.

Sakibike, sorry to hear the bike went down! Did you get hurt?

As for fixing the bike, two words: Streetfighter project!

Always trust your cape.

sounds like the gears in the trip meter skipped a tooth. A new gauge for the street fighter would be the easiest way to fix this. Getting into the stock instruments to remedy this is a right pain in the rear!
