2012 990R speedo adjust for 19/17 wheels help

Hello everyone - I remember reading on here one time that there is a specific procedure for adjusting the speedo/odo calibration on newer 990s for smaller wheels and I can't find the thread it was in. I'm installing 19/17 wheels on my 2012 990R and need to adjust for the smaller overall circumference. Can anyone help me out?

Thanks in advance

Per the thread:
09 onwards? You have to cut the brown/black striped wire on the speedo connector and leave it cut to enable access to the wheel size function.

To adjust the wheel size
1- press MODE to go to TRIP 1
2- Hold the MODE key for around 10 sec
3- It will show actual wheel size. Use the MODE key to increase the wheel size and the SET key to decrease it
4- Hold the MODE and SET key to exit

The default size on the 990R is 2205mm circumference for the 21" wheel.
19" - 2040 mm
17" - 1882 mm

so if yours is 10% out, adjust the circumference figure by 10% and go try again :)

Brilliant - thank you very much. So that wire that I cut needs to stay uncut for the adjustment and the reattached or do I leave it detached permanently?

I only found the thread . . . I do not have a 990.

After reading to the end . . . Better contact your dealer . . . It does not work for everyone.

End of thread:
Mine is a 2010 990. The referenced instructions did not work. My new HID bulbs arrived, so I'm ready to put it back together. Not knowing what the brown/black wire does, I'll have to solder it back together & button things up.

Edit: Google search shows that others are still struggling with this issue. I'm going to call my expert dealer tomorrow and see if he has any tips. Some of the instructions state to press both buttons while in trip F. I can't seem to get back to trip F now. Puzzled.....

My dealer told me today that they cut the same wire and use the same process to set / calibrate. Lets hope it works for me...

You don't have to cut it. Take a very small thin screwdriver, pry the tang holding it in the connector and just pull it out. Tape it up and leave it. It only prevents you from changing that setting.
