    12 vs 24 hr clock, 2014 r12gs

    Folks
    Poured over the owners manual.
    Can't seem to find how to change the clock from 12 hr to 24 hr format.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    I checked my 2016 wethead manual and did not see the option to change to 24 hr.
    The picture in the manual shows the clock in 24 hr mode so it must be possible.
    Maybe a dealer has to do it or it may be a option with a GS911.

    I have a '14 GS and I know I'm pretty sure I've changed back and forth. The problem is I can't remember how. Don't be afraid to play with it. If I remember in the morning, Ill go out and see if I can do it again and maybe remember long enough to post the answer.

    On the RT Wethead, it's a menu option. Select User, then Time Format, then 24h/12h.

    Hope the GS is similar.

    I had the dealer change it on my '16 GSA ("analog" dash). It's a user setting on the '20 GSA with the TFT. Perhaps on the OP's bike it's something that can be changed with GS-911, Motoscan, or the like, certainly a dealer should be able to do it.


    I wish BMW hadn't removed the ability of the user to change between mph and kph from the TFT dash, though. It shows in the manual, so the capability exists, it's been deliberately disabled which will be a nuisance if I'm ever able to ride into Canada again. One of these days I'll see if it's changeable with Motoscan, or better yet if I can enable the option in the user interface.
