A question:
If I disconnect the battery for a few minutes, will I have to reset anything when I reconnect - dials, gauges, trips, anything?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Mike,

Yes, the time will go to 12:00 and both trips will go to Zero when you reconnect.

Just do it a few minutes before noon, just after refilling the petrol tank -- all will be good. Disconnecting Battery Lol

Ah, the secret's out!

As a matter of interest; if both trips go to zero, what happens when one comes to sell (unlikely but possible) and the mileage is wrong?

Mike, Your scooter has trip "A" trip "B" and the Odometer. Just push the left botton to look at them. The right botton will reset the trip meter shown.

Of course! Silly me! Disconnecting Battery Icon_redface
The overall mileage is stored permanently.

Thanks again, Dennis (and Jon).

Mike, I have a gizmo I bought yonks ago from halfords. Don't ask me what it's called - no idea!!!!!

Plug into mains, insert gizmo into bike electric socket in glove compartment.

It then remember all codes and such. Battery can then be disconnected without loss of codes. Did it the other week when I fitted the leads for my Optimate.

Sounds interesting, Doug. I'll do a Google search.

I might just follow Jon's tip as the clocks go forward tonight. I won't have to fiddle if I reconnect at midday tomorrow. Disconnecting Battery Icon_smile

Hey MikeO, do they make one of those gizmos for personal use? I think a "memory keeper" is something I could use, but I'd probably forget where I put it. Disconnecting Battery Lol

I Googled, as is my wont, and found just one which is rather expensive for occasional use:

http://www.tayna.co.uk/Gunson-Intelligent-Memory-Minder-Keeper-P6565.html

I looked through the Halford's site but couldn't find the one I guess Doug has although I found a 'How To' video clip where one was used. I can't find it just now - I was using my laptop yesterday evening - but will post the link later when I do.

I have had mine years Mike, If memory serves me well it was a tad pricey, (for the time). However, many years and vehicles later it still serves me well on the occasion I need it.

I'm not sure, but I think that a 9V battery attached to the leads before diconnecting will keep all the data set....Works for vehicles with radio antitheft codes station presets..I think.

Disconnecting Battery 60135


OK.

I'll commit.
It can be done and they even sell them for vehicles that plug into cig lighters to save the the computer from having to "re-learn". Should work for a bike.

The blurb staes specifically it's for cars so I guess it'll do the business.
At that price I'd be happy to buy one on spec.

Similar item to the 9v above.

Just remember if you are working with any wires/connections ... you may still have "live" wires/connections with this setup.

The 9V DC current will not hurt you ... but it would be really bad if it negatively effects any electronics.
