    Wow! This old thread of mine keeps getting re-born!

    I'm assuming if you're doing the 600 miles service then you're still in warranty. Take it back. If they can't fix it, and yours is designed like the R bikes (and I think they are) then you may need to get a new cluster to fix the problem. Seems like a relatively uncommon thing, but this thread shows that its happened to at least two bikes.

    BTW, my "new" cluster has gone 29,000 miles in 2 1/2 years in all manner of weather, and the clock and everything else on the cluster has worked perfectly.

    Is there a trick I'm missing, or do you suppose my clock reset button simply doesn't work?
    Exactly what I get when I press the button.... nothing....
