    G,day Inmates,

    The clock on my 990 R is losing time.

    My 525 had a small battery in the instrument cluster to run the clock while the bike was stopped.

    Does the 990 have the same.....

    Checked the book but could find no reference!

    Thanks in anticipation.

    I don't think there is a stand-alone battery for the clock. Although it times correctly, my clock is the first thing to go screwy when battery gets low in the winter cold while sitting in garage....like showing 12:00 when it's 14:00hrs.

    +1, it runs from the "main" battery

    Which way do the clocks spin down there?

    Love Perth.
