Of course I didn't press both buttons after I'd reset it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you, Pat.

Who needs a dealership, anyway?

I have never noticed about the side stand being up, usually have it parked on centre stand, but I can never seem to get my clock to reset, unless the bike is running. then it will start flashing after about 3-5 seconds of both the buttons being pushed. left one pushed marginally before the right one.

Thumbs up SET CLOCK etc: Updated GOT IT !

On my (new to me) '13 GLEE, I WAS RTFM but couldn't figure out where the other (Select?) button was..The "Adjust" one was right out there on the cluster.

On the third or fourth "try", I happened to be standing on the left side of the machine and..BEHOLD! there was another UNSEEN "button" on the FRONT side of the left handlebar.
All the other tries were in the saddle position and it cant be seen from there (especially in 'the dark' behind the hand protector). Once it was 'discovered", things went a lot better from there. Its nice to be able to select MPH, Temp in Degrees F and miles on the ODO instead of that "metric" rubbish. I may live in Canada, long gone Metric but a Dinosaur like me (6tyeight) wants to see the REAL measurements.

My clock is about 10 minutes behind the actual time (until we fall back). I was going to adjust it until this last weekend. I was leading a group ride and trying to keep a eye on break times. There were a couple times I used the bike clock to make me feel better. Shoot for the real time and if that does not work out, leave by the bikes time. LOL.
I know its like setting your clock ahead and then staying in bed because you know your clock is ahead.

Some people just don't get how a 300+ mile round trip for lunch makes sense.
If you are reading this, you probably do.

Is the clock on the new bike the same as the 09? Mine seems hard to set...
