Shouldn't be that difficult - on my 06 all you do is hit Mode a few times and it should cycle around to a 24 hr clock. What is or isn't yours doing?

TKC80 vs Scorpion MT90 for 60/40

I have a 640A with a brand new set Scorpion MT90's. My riding is probably 60% Street / 40% Dirt. I'm not that thrilled with the MT90 on the front - it seems to wash out easily on steep downhills,...

I can barely do 500 miles a day on my FJR or BMW RT. I can't imagine dong that on the DR-Z. For traffic on the 405 or 5 in southern CA, about 20 miles on the DR-Z trying to run at 70+ mph is enough...

At this point is is between the well farkled KTM 640A and the DR650. I am leaning towards the KLR because of the better suspension and more faring.
