Oh that makes more sense I think, so no flash of rev limit lamp and 900 rpm does mean 90 hours then?? So that would be very low for a 6 year old motor, the previous owner said he didnt use it at all last year and not much the year before and said the orig owner hardly used it all from new so could be right, I'm guessing its not easy to tamper with it like a tachometer in a car??

I'd imagine the only way would be with a new ECU.

You can get software to adjust the mileage, ie changing the clocks.....
