Press both buttons at the same time to get into "Set" mode.

That just means you're not pressing them at exactly the same time. It's very picky, takes a couple tries usually

Re: Dumb Question: How Do I Reset the Clock?

Yeah, mine works best by pushing the right one just a fraction of a second before the left. The manual says to press the left control button while pressing the right control button. When in set mode, the minute display will start flashing. To set the time: The clock will alternate between the hour and minute adjust modes each time the left control button is pressed. Press the right control button until the desired time and "am" or "pm" is displayed. When done, wait approximately 10 seconds until the display stops flashing. You're done!

Usually takes me a half a dozen tries.

Re: Dumb Question: How Do I Reset the Clock?

It's easier to change the plugs then set the clock on these. The technical term for putting the clock into "set" mode is PFM. I covered mine with a piece of black electric tape along with all the other flashing O's in my house, i.e., VCRs and microwave.

LOL!! Thanks, Guys (and gals!). I'll give it a shot before I ride home tonight (it feels good riding into work again...). I've come close to hitting something because of that flashing "1:00" distracting me!

Re: Dumb Question: How Do I Reset the Clock?

It only takes me one try. Try pressing and holding the right button first, then press the left. Just press and hold the right one for a fraction of a second before pressing the left.

Haha, actually, I confess, I think it took me 2-3 tries last time, until I realized that the manual says to press and hold the right button, then press the left. Seems to help.

Re: Dumb Question: How Do I Reset the Clock?

A ruddy pain in the neck each spring & each time we change to "daylight saving time". Only for those that are at home with computers, & other toys with all the ruddy buttons & such. If you look around Honda has not been putting this on most of its other bikes, or so I feel, which tells you something!!!!!!

Not me, I'd rather add/subtract an hour instead of fussing with the clock. Much easier. Plus...who needs to know what time it is when you're riding anyway?
