What happen to vulcan 900 meter

I wonder what happen when the odometer hit the maximum numbers. Will it start back at 0 or stays at max..

Any of 900 er's hit the max number?

I'm not sure that's right ... I seem to have mislaid my owner's manual right now (oops) so maybe someone else could check, but I think I remember reading that the odo stays at max. Which would be 999,999 miles or 999,999 km (621,370 miles) depending on where you live, so it's not much of an issue, unlike with the old analog odos that only went up to 99,999.

I think this is right, but I think the maximun is 99,999. It's not likely that anyone will ride over a million miles.

The owners manual says (If I remember right, it's in the saddle bag, not gonna fish for it tonight) that at 999,999 miles it will simply 'freeze' in that position. It won't roll over, or do anything, it'll just read 999,999 forever and ever.

It definitely won't rollover/lock at 99k, right here on this forum there's a pic of one reading 150,000. But the manual says at 999k it'll just stop reading.

Thought so ... though I think it should really start flashing, to say "I'd get off this thing before it disintegrates if I were you"

I think you're right on this. It shouldn't lock at 99K. I wasn't thinking... and I don't remember where my owner's manual is.

I'm sure if someone were to clock 999,999 miles on their bike, Kawasaki would provide them with a new odo or complete bike for that matter in exchange for advertising rights.
