Do not use the cruise control system in heavy traffic, on roads with sharp or blind curves or on slippery roads of any kind. Using the cruise control in these circumstances can cause loss of control, which could result in death or serious injury. (00083a)
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)
Turn Cruise On
Cruise control operates when:
  • At least 10 seconds have lapsed since the engine was started.
  • Vehicle speed is between 40–145 km/h (25–90 mph) in second or higher gear.
See Figure 1. Press the CRUISE switch to turn on cruise (1). When on, the cruise icon in the speedometer face glows amber.
Set Cruise Speed
See Figure 1. When the motorcycle reaches your intended speed, press the SET/- switch down to set the cruise speed (2). The amber cruise icon changes to green.
If necessary, adjust the cruise speed to match the speed limit or traffic conditions:
Increase/Decrease Cruise
Tapping the RES/+ switch up increases speed by 1.6 km/h (1 mph). Holding up the RES/+ switch gradually increases cruise speed.
Tapping the SET/+ switch down decreases speed by 1.6 km/h (1 mph). Holding the switch down gradually decreases cruise speed.
Disengage Cruise
See Figure 1. To drop out of cruise speed, roll the throttle closed through the roll-off switch (3).
Cruise also disengages when the rider:
Resume Cruise
If the current speed is more than 24 km/h (15 mph) below the cruise speed, cruise will not resume.
See Figure 1. If cruise has been disengaged yet the cruise indicator is amber, pressing the RES/+ switch up resumes cruise (4). The icon glows green. The motorcycle automatically resumes cruise at the set speed.
Turn Cruise Off
Press the CRUISE switch to turn off cruise control. The cruise icon goes blank.
