Anybody find a better way to zero the odometer ( trip meter) on a '05 WR450 other than pulling the side knob out and winding it back 1/10th of a kM at a time. I cannot find any mention of it in the manual.
LOL, yeah, I had a run in with mine once. I used to own a KDX and it went back to zero at 100 miles. Well, not paying too much attention to the WR, I was at 80 miles and though, hey, be quicker to run it forward 20 miles. Well, as 100 came around, I was expecting it to roll to all zeros, DOH! It has an extra digit, so needless to say, I'd have to go back a full 100 miles to zero it. I have a fix for this. I left it on, left the knob out to it doesnt roll and use a trail tech computer. I have kept the original in place for backup, but have really considered removing it all together.

As a friendly reminder, the screw that holds the knob on the odo comes loose from time to time.. I've actually lost a couple of em'... Make sure they're tight..
Yeah, as I was winding mine back the other nite I realized the numbers quit moving and looked down to see I was spinning the knob with the tiny screw laying on the garage floor...

Go down to your local Yamaha dealer and order a knob for a TT R 250. It is about 1 1/2 half times bigger in diameter. It fits the shaft and uses the same itty bitty retaining screw..... It is much easier to grasp and makes rewinding much, much quicker. I don't know why Yamaha uses two differant Knob on the same odometer. (ttr & wr)
