GS 1200 turning head lights on/off

Hello;


My name is Andre and I am from Brazil. I am new to the forum and wanted to share this trick with you all.


On the GS 1200 the low beam is switched on the moment the engine starts to run. If you want to switch the lights off, press and hold the turn signal cancellation button for 5 seconds, release it, and hold the right turn signal button for another 5 secs. This should turn the headlight off.

This procedure may be done after switching the key and after the usual check up and before turning the engine on. It also works after the engine is running.

Unfortunatelly, to switch the lights back on you must switch the key off resetting the procedure.

I've tried this on my bike and it does not work. I"ve read of this before, so thanks for bringing it up again. I can't figure out why it won't work on my bike. I had the dealer switch my clock to 24 hour mode.

I'm kind of surprised that you aren't able to fool around with the gadgetry as much you think you would be able. My Aprilia had all kinds of neat little idioms to play with on the dash....except for the estimated fuel remaining...

Mine has a build date of March 2005. Maybe this trick works only on earlier build dates?

Works on my Aug 04.

I allowed POST to complete. Then followed proceedure, but held for 6 seconds to be safe. At start only the little parking light deal was lit. Now I can rob a bank, and it feels like I got a 10 HP boost as well!!

Cheers
