Finally got a hold of Andy at Kisan, and he explained the reset procedure again.

There are actually two methods:

1. Unplug the SM-6 for 30 seconds or more. Because the unit normally receives always-on power from pin 2 to keep the memory chips refreshed, removing power should allow the memory to clear and reset to default values.

2. In case you are lazy and don't want to pull the bike apart to unplug it, you can instead hold the Right Turn Signal button down and then switch the ignition key on and off THREE times quickly, leaving it on after the third "on" maneuver. Quickly means the third on must happen within about 3.5 seconds from the first on. ( so it's "on, off, on, off, on"). It may work from park instead of off, I don't recall perfectly though.

I'm pretty sure I tried #1 when mine shorted and started acting crazy. I even left it unplugged overnight without luck. I was ready to send it to them when Andy told me the #2 trick, and it worked for me.

I love every motorcycle I've owned and even some that I haven't.
