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 (11) registers miles per hour (mph) and kilometers per hour (kph) of forward speed.
Odometer, Trip Odometer and Reserve Fuel Odometer (F-trip)
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)
See Figure 1. The odometer window (9) within the speedometer has five displays. The default display is the odometer. It measures the cumulative number of miles (kilometers) traveled.
Two separate trip odometers record mileage until reset. Use the trip odometers for tracking distances between two points or for determining gasoline consumption between fuel stops. The reserve fuel odometer (F-trip) is activated automatically when fuel level drops below about 0.75 gallons (2.8 liters) and counts mileage traveled after low fuel indicator illumination. The F-trip resets, after a 3-minute delay, when enough fuel is added to bring fuel level above about 0.75 gallons (2.8 liters).
  1. Turn ignition key to ON.
  2. See Figure 1. Press mode (M) button (8) to toggle between odometer, trip odometers and clock. Display window will read TRIP in trip odometer modes. The first digit in the window indicates TRIP 1 or 2.
  3. Zero the trip odometers as follows. Activate trip odometer mode. Press and hold reset (R) button (7) for 2-3 seconds to reset trip odometer.

Setting Clock
  1. Turn ignition key to ON.
  2. See Figure 1. Press mode (M) button (8) to toggle to clock display.
  3. Simultaneously press (M) and (R) buttons for 2-seconds or until clock display flashes.
  4. Press (M) button to set hours and (R) button to set minutes.
  5. After time has been set, simultaneously press (M) and (R) buttons to exit setting mode and start clock operation.
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)
See Figure 1. The tachometer (10) registers the engine speed in revolutions per minute (RPM).
