For the life of me I can't figure out how to change the time on this thing. I am sure it's something really simple. If someone has done this and can save me any more aggravation, I would appreciate it. Thanks!
I was pushing the buttons by themselves, haven't pressed them at the same time. I'll try that on Saturday. I'm separated from my bike during the week until summer (teach in NY during the week, bike is in PA). Yay. Thanks!
I haven't been watching the temp. What are you looking for? When starting it, I wait for the RPMs to even out and for the bike to sound like it's running smooth. Maybe the temp thing would be easier, if this is what you are doing with it.
I keep mine set to cover the engine temp as well. Jen, when you start the bike, its best (this is just my opinion) to let the engine get some heat in it before you drive off. I usually let it idle until its over about 124*. Once the engine is warm enough to register a temp on the display it will heat up rather quickly, but just driving off with a cold engine is a big no no...
I'm there for a bit. My Harley takes ten minutes to warm up. Maybe more. Ugh. I'm used to waiting. I'll check the temp and make sure it's there. With the Harley, it's a listening thing since there really isn't much info coming from gauges. I have a speedometer, that's it. I have been listening to the bike the same way but also using the tach. The temp thing is a good idea.
It's the first thing that I did. Someone here actually told me to throw it out the window or burn it or something. I don't recall seeing the time thing. My favorite page was the one that talked about the shift points and speeds. They were absolutely ridiculous.
