Question about 3DS with Mario Kart 7 pre-installed

Quick question

A friend bought a 3DS that came with MK7 installed on it.

Does that means if he loses the game somehow or removes it to make space for another game he's free to download it again without paying anything so long as he's still using the same system and data the game came with?

As long as the system is tied to a Club Nintendo account

Club Nintendo?

I thought this was an eShop data thing...

You don't need to have a Club Nintendo account in order to re-download the game. The game is indeed tied to the system.

Just as an experiment, have your friend remove the SD card, access the eShop, and see if it has the option to re-download the game.

Not really the console knows what game belongs to the system.
