Clock

Here in the USA, my clock (GS) displays AM/PM instead of a proper 24 hour clock and there appears to be no way of changing it (unlike my Triumph, which gives me a choice).

I'm just wondering if locations outside of the US have a 24 hour clock display. Feedback appreciated. TIA

I was also wondering whether it was possible to change to Celsius rather than Fahrenheit. Must be a software adjustment.

I did that, and there's nothing I could find in the manual that describes how to change F to C. Can you tell us where that info might be hiding?

This is just a guess, but I am thinking metric for the countries that use it and imperial/US measurements elsewhere is
preset by manufacturers shipment destinations. I have not seen anything in the riders manual that shows how to change
it. Although the dealer may be able to when hooked up to their laptops.

Undoubtedly - but I have to believe that it's only software and not a separate piece of hardware - especially on a bike with its price point.

A dealer (service department) can change this, User NHOY had his clock changed from 24hr to 12h in one of the other threads.


I'll likely get mine changed from 12h to 24h next service

Has to be done by the dealer, which means it does not comply with UK Regulations that demand it can be changed by a switch.
