Definitively not normal from what I've seen with mine, holding in on the selector switch is what changes that display reading.

Not normal behavior that I am aware of. On my 2013, you toggle between clock and temperature by holding in the selector switch on the front of the left hand grip for a couple of seconds. When you figure out how you managed to get it to alternate, do let me know. I wouldn't mind having that as an option .

Can happen, if your clutch lever is wrongly tilted and while pressed, it's pressing the Meter button.

Or, if it's rightly tilted.

This happened to me when I adjusted the clutch rotation to where I wanted it. Just had to rotate the control pod a bit to avoid the clutch depressing the button.

Yep, exact same thing happened to me. Adjusted the clutch lever rotation and couldn't figure out why it would swap clock/temp "randomly". "Randomly" just happened to be every time I shifted....

Anduril Hit it on the head!!!👍

The clutch lever was hitting the selector switch & changing time/temp. Move the lever slightly and everything is back to normal.

Thanks for the feedback guys!!!👌
