    my question: at the moment you press the SET button,
    what should you be doing with the throttle?

    Answer : Keeping it where it is to maintain the speed you are doing,
    then releasing it after pressing the SET button, and the Green light has come on.

    Oodoom, not knowing what year your TTSE is, my 2013 had to be taken to the dealer for reflash because the cruise was not working.  I tried the aforementioned procedure with no positive results.

    If you are trying to set your cruise at or above 160 KPM “100 MPH” it will not set.🤫🚨

    What a great safety feature.  My 2001 K1200LT would set at 110 mph.  Those darn German bikes are dangerous.    :745: :745: :745:

    Hi all

    Many thanks for all your suggestions. Think I may have cracked it with Coconuts help. Met him at the Staffordshire Bikers Breakfast yesterday and he figured out that the rear brake light switch was sticking. Sure enough, on my ride home, if I hooked the brake lever up with my toes, I was able to activate the cruise.
    So, just need to lube/adjust the brake switch and make sure the lever is returning properly. Hopefully an easy job for one night this week!
    Thanks again everyone!

    I had a similar problem.  That's why in my previous post I suggested your brake light switch might be stuck "on".

    There was a very small stone stuck between the brake mechanism and the plate cover.  I now carry a small pick to clean out that area just in case that happens again.

    Another suggestion :  If your brake light was stuck on because the brake lever wasn't being releasded fully, but your brake wasn't dragging enough for you to notice that,  maybe the rear brake light switch should be adjusted so it's less sensitive:  i.e. so that it takes a little more movement of the rear brake lever so the brake light comes on.

    One more thing to check, which I didn't mention yesterday,
    and didn't really check while looking at your bike ....

    Make sure the Brake pedal is moving freely on its pivot point,
    as these have been known to get corroded / gunged up,
    and that may cause the Brake pedal to bind on the pivot point
    of the securing bolt, and then not return to its correct rest
    position when the brake pedal is released.

    Cheers  :821:
