that area is open on tons of bikes, mostly offroad bikes - many run their gas tank vent hose down it.

pretty common to not have a plastic plug in it

Oops! Mark, I used two sets of these tires to get to that mileage. Both times the fronts still had a few miles left in them, but the rears were shot.

I still think that the Michelins are vastly underrated tires, especially on 650 sized thumpers.

Sorry for misrepresenting their actual mileage initially.

Talked to the dealer. The hole is now plugged.

This terra is no longer in the showroom. I'm going to have so much more stupid questions. It's FUN to ride though.

I bet there is something in your refrigerator that will fit nicely.

High Five, I am going to present you with a money making idea for that plug, for FREE. Make a digital clock that drops in. Just saying, man I wish I had a clock, and I looked at the instruments and I could possibly put one of them small round ones in the center of the tach, but as a plug in the steering, I think that might be really great.

Are you kidding me? I can't figure out that console to save my life. Whatever it is set at is where it will stay. Even the tripmeter, would love to use it. That console is the worst thing I have ever seen on a motorbike. But hell, my eyes aren't on it much anyway. I do love the tach.

Texting and driving is deadly, these electronic gadgets are fine when you are sitting on a couch errr sumpin. I'm too old school.

see the "M" and "S" buttons....the "S" button cycles thru the different readouts.

you should probably flip thru the manual too

Yeah....I think the dash is terrific! And it works too!!

Pretty easy to push a button to toggle, but maybe that's just me.

Try pushing the "S" button repeatedly to see the different readouts. Then, just hold the "S" button down to reset the value (i.e. zero out the trip meter).

When you get to the clock, hold down the "S" until the hours start flashing. Mine is set for 24 hr clock....which I personally prefer.

With the hour flashing....pushing tapping the "S" will increase hours, and tapping the "M" will decrease hours.

Holding down the "S" will make it switch to minutes (flashing). Repeat up or down increments as desired.

When finished making changes, hold down the "S" again until things stop flashing, and let go. Voila!

Pretty simple really. I think it might be the simplest one I have had. And, I've seen some doozies, to be certain.

Finally took delivery!

Got it Friday and spent the rest of the next two days putting on the extras (and tires). Got the Mossectomy and it runs great! So far so good...
