06 Odometer Issues
Posted September 29, 2006 - 07:45 AM
I have an 06 WR450 and it had a crappy battery from the factory. Every time I started the bike the voltage would drop and I would loose my odometer setting. I finally took care of the battery and all, but I got out my bike this morning to start it and it wouldn't turn over.... I got it to finally kick over manually, but when I finally got the bike running I realized my odometer was reset again. Is there any way to keep it from reseting on it's own? Maybe wire a back up battery for just the speedo. Any suggestions?

Cut the + wire coming from the bikes loom (to the meter and now small battery) and put a 6 Amper diode in series (between the cut ends).
The diode will allow + current to run to the additional (small) battery from the main battery, but prevent the current going from the small battery to the main battery.
