odometer

Post by winguyjo »



is the last digit on a gl1500 odometer registering tenths of a mile (or tenths of a km) ? on every motor vehicle i have ever owned this last digit represents 1/10th but i have seen several ads where the seller says the bike has, for example, 164,615km yet the photo shows what i think is 16,461.5km

if anything, the sellers error is usually in the other direction but i have seen this at least twice.

please advise.
thanks
joe

The trip meter shows tenths but the odometer read in full miles. ( or moms ). Joe
