I've only recently discovered my odometer isn't entirely accurate.

There must be a couple of teeth missing off one of the cogs in the speedo or something, as it's not ticking over all the time, which is a worry as I do my oil changes according to the speedo reading.

I've had it fixed but also bought a motominder hour meter as a backup. I normally change my oil every 500kms. What does this equate to roughly in running hours?

Interesting question...

Probably depends on the riding terain.. I use the measure of Tanks of fuel.

Ride slow there is less wear but uses less fuel, Ride fast more fuel..

I use the measure of 5 tanks of fuel which is +- 500km.

This works very well for my Quad with no ODO...

At 500km/h to 1 hour & at 10km/h to 50 hours :ride: best to use Vader3d formula :thumbsup:
