    Resetting the clock on the 1200GS

    I've read the owners manual, and pressed the rubbery button for two seconds waiting for the clock to start blinking in set mode. But nothing ever happens. I've tried it with the ignition in every position, with the bike's engine on and off, and in several gears plus neutral, pressing gently and with a lot of weight on it, and still, nothing happens.

    Is there a trick I'm missing, or do you suppose my clock reset button simply doesn't work?

    If you figured this out let me know how it works. I did not get the owners manual with my 05 GS so I have not figured out how to set my clock

    Lightbulb 2 ways to do it

    Hi,

    First way to do it it to press the reset button for more than 5 seconds.
    2nd way is to disconnect the battery terminals but you should try the first option.

    Cheers

    I can do mine anytime, but you have to hold the rubberized button for more than 2 seconds to get it started.



    Hold the button until the hours start to blink, release it. Then push it repeatedly until it is at the right time.

    Hold the button again until the hours stop blinking, release it.

    Hold the button until the minutes start to blink, release it. Then push it repeatedly until it is at the right time.

    Hold the button again until the minutes stop blinking, release it.

    Done.

    The pita of it all is that the last push of the button to lock the hour, adds another hour to the display... The same w/ minutes!

    It takes some getting used to, and how often does one adjust/set the time? Not exactly intuitive.
