I started up last night to head home from work and a few miles later noticed the clock flashing (ie reset) and the trip meter had been reset as well.

Okay I didn't notice it when I jumped on bu by the reading it looked like between parking in the morning and starting up in the evening there was reset. Exactly like what would happen if you disconnected the battery.

Now it started fine so it wasn't a low battery and it was also fine this morning. I park within the building car park which is secure and there appeared to be no signs of attempted theft etc.

So any suggestions on what this could be.

It's an 02 model with about 21,000 km on it.

Probably someone around the bike & pressing the two buttons to loose time & trip meter.

Personally I do not like all the digital stuff on the 929/954 for it can go whammy on its own or be accidently tripped by yourself to even someone that might press one or two buttons.

True the larger speedo numbers are good, but I ride a '97 Yamaha 600r with normal clocks & that is what I would prefer on my 929. True speed, tach 'clocks', heat elements, trip meter, & to 'ell with a clock, for time of the day, one must set twice a yr for most of us have a wristwatch & can judge time as we have in past yrs.

Just a fraction of a glance at the two 600r clocks & I know my speed & revs while at times I can be fooled by the numbers like 3, 6, 8, & 9. Even worse is if someone trips the speed from your MPH or KPH to the very opposit. My preference is a temp gauge like in a car being simple with a few numbers & the red mark it the needle is coming to close. Besides who, when riding has the time to look closely at the temp gauge numbers & still be keeping their eye on the traffic & road?

Something I have noted is ONLY from 929 & 954 bike owners do we hear the constant questions about the engine being to hot as they read the numbers & have NOT read the owner's manual!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah my initial thoughts was someone playing, but they'll need to do some fairly intrusive "playing" to cause a reset. It hasn't done it again since so I'll wait until next service and mention it then.

And if I ever get time I'll do a complete strip and clean (the bike that is) and check every connecter etc.

Thanks.
