478 problem

Glad that helped. Bump related on/off does sound more like a hardware issue, maybe bad solder joint. Looks like you'll have to explore inside after all.

My 376C had a similar problem. Turned out to be a corrupted data card. Replaced it with a new one and all was good.

How to disable clock

Anybody know how to disable the clock so it doesn't draw battery juice with the key off but leave the rest of the speedo functions working?

Bike is a 2000 S model.

Thanks.

I had a Legend a while back. For the money, it served me well. Replaced by a Vista Cx. I used Mapsource. I only used it to load Garmin maps but you might want to give it a try.

TT sidestand

I can confirm the TT sidestand is easy to shorten. I took 1/2 inch off, decided it wasn't quite there and took another 1/2 inch. That's about the limit without drilling.

Yes, used it a lot last season. I'm fussy about where I lay my lumpy old head and it was very comfortable, particularly considering how small it packs down.

Same with me when I put on the Trailtech. You can pull out the plastic foot, saw about an inch off the bottom of the stand and re-install the foot to get a "just right" lean angle.
