DO: Go for a long ride! Know that is will be a bit growly at low speeds, and below 100kph (55mph) it will be warm-hot, be heavy on your wrists, etc. At 30mph (50 kph) its going to get HOT, don't worry about it. Stopped at the lights, its going to make you think its going to burn through to the centre of the earth.

DON'T: Drop it in the dealers driveway... Expensive and embarrassing

For the clock: start the engine, make sure its in neutral, sit on the bike, fold up the side stand, use the starter button to scroll through to the clock, hit the reset on the console and scroll through the numbers, makes more sense when you are doing it.

So, started, in neutral, side stand up. Weird but it works.


Welcome!!!! Enjoy your stay and take every opportunity to torture the Brutale crowd

Whilst the correct trip is displayed (there are 2), press and hold the starter button until it starts to flash. Then press the starter button again, the trip should reset to zero. Until you are used to this, it may take a couple of goes - only try it when stationary!
This one is completely on the starter button.

Yup he nailed it...

1) start bike
2) start button till you reach trip A or trip B
3) when on trip a or trip b press and hold the start button for (30-45 seconds) it will start flashing
4) press and release start button to reset trip
