Setting Vstrom clock

On travel and don't have my manual - can someone please remind me how to reset my clock (2007 650 V-strom). I disconnected my battery and lost the time..........

I tired briefly a few attempts but can't remember (something about holding in the buttons.............minor annoyance but would be great........to set it right.

Thanks in advance

Cycle your trip meters until you are on the Odo (not trip1, trip2)
Hold both buttons down until the clock starts flashing.
Set with one button, move to next with other (can't remember which)
Push both buttons when done

All of the above...plus make sure the bike in Neutral and the key is turned on.

Odo/trip setting does not matter. With the ignition on, engine running if worried about battery drain, and the kill and side stand switches not indication a CHEC condition, press the left button slightly ahead of the right and hold both down until the clock starts to flash. Then use the right button to adjust and the left to switch from minutes to hours and the right to adjust again. Push the left when finished.

no matter how many times we've done it, it's still a pain in the arse.

I got so sick of it I bought one of these.




This thing is VERY easy to see and set up. Plus I get the nice voltmeter.

Don't forget to have on blue socks, curse your mother, hold your tongue to the right... could they have made it any more complicated?

And after all that, mine doesn't even keep time. I'm now up to 13 minutes slow.

I guess I'm lucky, the clock on my '05 keeps perfect time. Still trying to figure out all the bitchin' about having to push two buttons to set the time. Takes all of 10 seconds or so, maybe Suzuki will design telepathic clock setting into the next Strom upgrade for those so inconvenienced by the current set-up?

That gem isn't really waterproof. I have mine under the instruments where it is out of the elements pretty well and never had a problem though. Mine came from http://www.casporttouring.com/store/...ROD/cgid/14124

To beat this rotting horse, it seems to help if you hit the left button slightly before the right.

Indeed. It would seem hitting the right slightly before the left prevents things from working. Purposely hitting the left slightly before the right prevents that.
