Ignition on, in neutral.

Press both buttons and hold until 'minutes' side starts flashing. Release both buttons. Adjust minutes by pressing right button. Press left button, and 'hours' side will flash. Adjust by pressing right button. Press left button to hold the setting.

On mine I found I have to hit the left button slightly before the right button for it to work. Just sayin'.

I think it's the "ignition on" part that trips a lot of people up. Got me the first time.

You get a CHEC if the kill switch is off or the side stand is down with the bike in gear.

Thanks! Who would have guessed that you can't set the clock with the side stand down. Safety first.

You could put the transmission in neutral. The safety interlock is about not being able to take off with the stand down. The clock area of the LCD just happens to be used to carry the warning one of the interlocks is in the wrong position.

Wait until you accidentally knock one of the clutch lever switch wires off and the bike won't crank. There is no warning display about that. The forums are full of people bump starting V-Stroms who think their starters have failed. "I just washed my bike and now it won't start" is common along with "I dropped my bike and now it won't start".

The latter is also commonly about the tip over switch. If a Strom with the ignition switch on is dropped, the TOS cuts off power to the fuel pump and displays an FI. The ignition switch has to be cycled off and on after the bike is upright before it can be started.
