Set my clock last week. Kickstand up. Ignition on. Engine not running. Pushed and held the left button slightly before also pushing and holding the right. Waited for several seconds. Bingo, minutes started flashing. Easy peasy from there....

I know it's an old thread, But I just set my clock for the upcoming spring... which can't get here soon enough.
I was having troubles as well. pushing both buttons at the same time. left button first. etc. The key was on. Bike on center stand with side stand up. Finally, I remembered what I found the trick to be last year... which was to make sure the kill switch is in the RUN position. Within seconds I had my clock set. I also now have a sticky note in my shop manual.

After dealing with the cryptic setting sequences on three modern Suzukis (at least one of which works slightly differently), it was refreshing on the Honda Helix where there is a single button on the dash labeled "Clock" that you press and hold until it scrolls to the desired time. Crazy 80s technology...
