Long story short I got cut off, crashed the bike, the odometer doesn't read and now the insurance is saying that they will only give me what a bike with 35k miles is worth even though mine only had around 8k miles. does anyone know of a way to pull the mileage out of the odometer to a laptop or something? Unless I can intercept the info from the odometer the insurance company is trying to give me $4200 even though my bike was immaculate with around 8k in aftermarket parts.


Thank you in advance and upgrade your insurance so you don't get stuck with the hospital, ambulance, Fire Department etc. bill when you get hit by an underinsured motorist.

Really sorry to hear about your accident, hope you’re recovering well! I’m afraid I don’t know of anyway to retrieve that information, unfortunately.

Also, please introduce yourself in the “Starting Line” section and tell us about your riding experience, bikes owned, and perhaps about your accident. Pictures are always welcome :cheers

I'd be a little more worried about that then the money brother. You can make more money however you cant replace your life. Make sure as said above to introduce yourself in the starting line section. More people will be apt to help you afterwards. Not sure if this helps but you might be able to pull engine hours off of the ECU somehow maybe a shop could do it and show those to the insurance company and compare with engine hours of a 35k engine? Also ALWAYS make sure you call your insurance company and add aftermarket parts so they will be covered otherwise they wont.

Wow sorry I hope your recovery goes well, god bless! Stay healthy and safe keep the wombs clean. As far as your odometer I have no clue but I think I would look into a place with a reputation that flashes Ecu and ask them. Or find someone that specialises in cluster rebuilds. How about a pic of the odometer maybe have someone check the harnes behind I know it’s physically cracked but maybe u pulled a wire from behind also.

There are youtube videos about resetting the mileage on cars (and maybe bikes, I forget) where they find the eprom with the mileage info, read it and rewrite it. But it's simpler, safer, and more credible to let him do it.

It's been briefly discussed years ago when Ridgeracer was active but AFAIK there is no engine hours info on the ECM.

P.S. What gear did you have on?

Any members here that are proficient in ECU flashing? Over on the truck forums there are multiple members that tune for other members but as I've always had a power commander on all my bikes and I've never been good enough to get custom tuning, I never developed a relationship with a bike tuner. I'll get a pic of the odometer

Thanks for the tip, I will contact them.

Arai helmet and gloves, shorts, running shoes and a t shirt...Same as the last time I crashed my other 1000k1.

I took a 3 mile trip to O'reillys and the accident was less than a mile from my shop. The other driver took a left hand turn and I had no time to stop or exit route. I grabbed my brakes so hard i pulled a nose wheely which in hindsight probably saved my life cause it helped propel/flip me over the car instead of just slamming into it.

Not enough gear brother but I assume you know that.... ATGATT I know it sounds childish and stupid but you can be the best rider in the world and someone pulls out in front or hits you and it no longer matters.
And thank you for the info about engine hours on the ECU!

What makes anyone think that insurance twats could accept info from anyone? Some Suzuki authorised Dealership might be the answer or a technical/forensic specialist accepted by insurance. In U.K. they show mileage on MOT certificate for the last few years so everyone can see what mileage the bike had when examined at annual check up. Don't you have any papers like that?

My lawyer said that I need to have the mileage retrieved if i want to get blue book payment above a 35k bike. No I had pics on my phone of odometer of the an oil change which was rougthly 20 miles before accident but that was damaged. I have tried a few dealerships but none that know anything or anyone at dealerships that want to really help.

Yes, I got my first street bike in 2001, first dirt bike in 1994 so I am well aware of gear, the hazard of other drivers etc. I have avoided hundreds of wrecks with plenty of oblivious drivers taking left hand turns but there was no avoiding this one. Moving forward, I'm still alive and I've been screwed with medical bills for an accident i wasn't at fault for so I at least want to get more than the 4500ish that was offered for an immaculate bike that had around 8k in parts.

You could also connect your cluster to a similar bike. Given what's on the line, I suggest that it be very similar, i.e. K5/K6 1000. If it doesn't work, Bluegauges ought to be able to retrieve it anyway.

Understood. Like BillV said have someone try and retrieve that and I hope you can find some way to rectify the costs. Lawsuit?
