    My clock disappeared from my 990 instruments. It's weird as hell. I scroll thru' the odometer, trip one, trip two and KMs since reserve started but the clock is no where to be seen. No matter how many times I push mode the clock is gone.

    2008 990 adventure and possibly TARDIS.

    It's because you don't need a clock when you're on an adventure:rofl ... so looks like the bike is telling you to take her around the world ;)

    You may have blown the fuse, check the glove box fuses.

    The clock and ACC fuse has blown. If you were trying to install / connect a load to the ACC (i dont remember if it is ACC1 or 2) then there is a chance of intermittent connection happening which would have led to the blown fuse. Replace it and you will get your time back.

    yep, it was the fuse. Thanks all.

    Hopefully the replacement wont blow after 5 minutes.

    Just had some KTM heated grips installed, hopefully that is not upsetting things.

    My 950 is doing the same thing.
    Checked all the fuses.
    No clock, just "F".
    But the clock did come back once, briefly.
    But it left again.

    Strange.

    I hate heated grips. Not the warmth, just the normal shitty install and weak parts. They typically increase service problems by 2x.

    Electric gloves are a way better solution.
