Did someone knick your clocks?
That's really shitty if the case.
As long as you like it fuck what anyone else thinks.
Yup. Ripped the fucker right out. Fucking irritating as even with new clocks, mileage won’t match.
There’s a spate of it. Apparently the latest GS lcd is super popular.
What are the chance you’ll end up buying it back from a guy on eBay?
Firstly that is utterly shit.
You can get the mileage adjusted to be correct.
But what am I missing in the value of the clocks as I though modern bikes had to have clocks program matched to the ecu and immobiliser?
They must be hackable. You can probably buy a hacking kit on the dark web. Yet another case of the motor industry being crap at anti-theft. Like when Range Rover locks could be hacked.
Damn that is batshit crazy. Sorry mate, what a bloody drag.
So was chatting to the recovery guy and he recovered a GS today for same reasons.
I had no idea but forum search yielded this issue since Tiger 800’s came to. Same with GS’s to a degree.
@lynx I’m not sure if they have to be programmed to talk to each other. Might just be plug and play, albeit with fucky mileage.
@Jung that’s it innit. Fucking drag of it all. Interesting as the fucker knew exactly what they were doing. Balls to it all.
Anyone want to chat about cars?😁
See car thread for further info.
Hahahaha, any recommendations for a bike that can carry a wardrobe... or might just get a van? 😅
Agreed, a lot of bike chat considering we've decided they're rubbish and too dangerous :)
Van life is the logical progression
Hahaha. It was just getting good!
I think my red bike has healed itself. Gave it a good hundred mile rag on sunday and it was faultless. Italians. Fickle.
Treat em mean…
When they started mentioning a Fireblade as if it's an option for cheap speed, a sort of bargain sports car...I couldn't help myself.
This is all getting strange. Some one I know, via the ducati forums, had his brembo radial calipers and radial master cylinder stolen. The braided lines were just cut cleanly too.
Yeah, maybe I should stop adding to it.
Part of me still wants a motorbike engined car, mainly for the sequential box.
Fucked up, but makes sense. They go for a fair bit of cash and are near impossible to track.
Same way whole front end is stolen on bikes. See that weekly.
So are we at the stage we need to deal with the people buying the stolen stuff?.
Or we could get all the bits security-marked.
Yeah as that has worked.
See datatag and smart water as examples.
EDIT: My bitching as marked bikes parts never appeared
