Travel at speeds appropriate for road and conditions and never travel faster than posted speed limit. Excessive speed can cause loss of vehicle control, which could result in death or serious injury. (00008a)
See Figure 1. The speedometer registers miles per hour (kilometers per hour for international) of forward speed.
Never attempt to tamper with or alter the vehicle odometer. This is illegal. Tampering with or altering a vehicle odometer may cause equipment damage. (00160a)
The tachometer registers the engine speed in revolutions per minute (RPM).
See OPERATING RECOMMENDATIONS section. Do not operate the engine above maximum safe RPM as shown under OPERATION (red zone on tachometer). Lower the RPM by upshifting to a higher gear or reducing the amount of throttle. Failure to lower RPM may cause equipment damage. (00159a)
Trip Odometer
See Figure 2. Use the trip-odometer A or trip-odometer B to register number of miles/kilometers traveled on a trip or between refueling.
Odometer will wake up when bike is OFF while the function switch is pressed. (No need to turn the bike on to check the odometer reading).
Odometer/Trip Odometer/Fuel Range Functions
See Figure 1. The speedometer has a single display window for the odometer, trip odometer and fuel range displays. The odometer registers the number of miles (kilometers) the vehicle has traveled. Use the trip odometer to register the number of miles (kilometers) traveled on a trip or between refueling. The fuel range display shows the approximate mileage available with the amount of fuel currently in the fuel tank.
  1. Press the rubber covered function switch to change the display window on the speedometer face to either odometer or trip-odometer.
  2. To reset the trip-odometer to zero, press button to reset speedometer display to the ODOMETER mode and hold the button in for approximately 2-3 seconds.
  3. See Figure 2. Press the odometer reset switch to change the display window on the speedometer face to odometer, trip-odometer, or fuel range. The fuel range function can be identified by the letter 'r' on the left side of the display and the calculated number of miles (km) left. When the motorcycle is very low on fuel, the fuel range function displays "r lo".
The speedometer will switch to the trip-odometer mode and reset the display to zero. The trip-odometer is displayed and reset to zero.
Tip Indicator Lamp
If tip occurs, check all controls for proper operation. Restricted control movement can adversely affect the performance of the brakes, clutch or ability to shift, which could result in loss of vehicle control and death or serious injury. (00350a)
Should motorcycle be tipped over, the word "tip" will appear in the odometer window. To reset, cycle ignition/headlamp key switch ON-OFF-ON.
