Not too sure if the Honda system is the same, but to give you an idea of what may be required, I'll tell you about the PSA (Peugeot/Citroen) odometer (mileage) storage system:
The vehicle mileage is stored in the Engine ECU, Speedometer Assembly, and the BSI (Built-in Systems Interface, the main body computer). When ever one of these components is replaced, the one with the highest mileage becomes the default for the other two components, i.e. if a set of clocks (speedo) from a 50,000 mile vehicle is fitted to a 20,000 mile vehicle, all three components will now read 50,000 miles. The only way to reset the mileage is to replace all three components at the same time, the idea being that it makes it hideously expensive to clock the mileage.
