button on left control

Sorry, maybe being lazy to not read the manual, but what is that little button on the top of the left hand control, it is towards the front.

Thanks, did not see any info. on that button on the forum.

That's the odometer trip button. Press it with the key off it will show the mileage. Press it with the key on and you can choose between actual mileage on bike, Trip A, Trip B, or R for miles remaining on the tank of fuel.

Too lazy to read the manual that tells you how to operate the bike but not to ask others to provide answers for you? Thatís only going to work if you ride only where there is cellphone reception.
Good luck.

Being able to operate the odometer and trip from the bars is hardly anything important, but yeah.

Maybe I am wrong but a public forum is nothing more than sharing information and experiences.

You suggested in your original post that perhaps you were being lazy. Maybe you should quote that instead of my post agreeing with you.

I disagree with your other words: that being able to operate the odometer and trip from the bars is hardly anything important. If it wasnít important there would not have been a reason to ask. Yet you did.

Iím not suggesting you shouldnít ask. Iím suggesting you should read your manual between hunting trips for beer.

That's the nitrous button on my bike.

Panic, chaos, disorder, my work is done here.

Good luck.

A little harsh.

Once I make up my mind, I'm full of indecision.
