Check VX1 without main battery

Hi, I have VX1 with dead battery. It currently has no title and I need to bring it to DMV CA for the inspection since I brought it out of state. That's fine if it's not running, as they will be doing VIN and emission checks. However, I was told they also need to check the actual odometer reading. Would you please suggest the way to turn on a bike without main battery by providing 12V power directly to an instrument cluster? I expect it's a motor controller drives 12V line, would you please suggest a pinout for this?

Thanks!!!

You could just trickle charge the battery with a 150v charger. I have one you can borrow if you are in NorCal, come on by and I'll show you how to hook it to the battery to bring the batteries back online

thanks! I found that I have DC-DC which is capable up to 120V. It actually works just fine for the purpose and can hold 105V @ 0.5A while the bike is turned on. Hopefully, DMV won't ask for a ride :)))
