Hi, I'm hoping someone might have had the same problem and can help. I pulled my fuses the other day the check them and when I turned on the ignition I noticed that I lost all my trip meters and no matter what I do I can't set the clock. It will blink but not set. I have unhooked the battery for a few hours to try and reset the display but it did not fix it. Any ideas? :confused:

When you unhook the battery, you don't need to leave it for any time. Unhook the battery, then turn the ignition on, you'll see the display flash just a little from residual current. Tap a brake lever or pedal to be sure you've got it all, then turn your ignition off and hook the battery back up.

I don't know if this will help with your problem, but it's cleared faults for me in the past.

UPDATE: I was chasing wires to see if there was a loose connection anywhere and I took the headlight off and started checking all the connections. I had the bike idling and when I touched the wad of wires it cut off. I found that the main connector wasn't snapped together all the way from the previous owner and it just wasn't making a good enough connection. After I snapped it together, everything works! I got my clock to set and I got my trip meters back! This was a first for me but I am glad it happened now because we are getting ready for a Blue Ridge Parkway ride in a few weeks. Maybe this will help someone else down the road.
