    Clock losing time

    I have a 13 plate TTSE with 30k miles. All seems to work fine. However the clock seems to loose time between rides. I looked on search here and in both manuals to see if low battery icon afects time as I sometimes listern to radio when in garage but cannot find any refrence to time being affected with low battery icon. I have fitted a Datatool alarm (evo plus with no auto arm selected) and when in garage I dont use alarm. Any Ideas?

    I've obviously got a similar model. When it was younger it didn't get up till about 7 am. Now as the years roll on, it gets up at 3 am then about 6 am. I wish it would keep time like when it was younger.  :745: :745:

    It seems fine now and I think its my old age affecting my brain. The heavy girl was at dealers for a new ABS ring and I don't think I reset the time since they had it. The time differance would be something to do with them. :430: :001:

    It seems that just about every procedure in the service manual starts by saying "disconnect the battery".

    Interesting.  I think mine does too  ('13 model ).. CLOCK that is...
    Never really thought about it, as I take a trip from central time to eastern time every year, and reset the clock back and forth, do my own maint so the battery gets disconnected once in a while for that and of course clock reset after it's reconnected.
    But I was late to a ride by just a few minutes this summer, in real time, but according to the TTSE clock I was early.  Dawned on me I've occasionally reset it a few minutes forward.
    So... may be a characteristic of the bike.  Like low battery voltage warnings, Audio off, TES warning on cold starts at cold temps, etc... Mine has had these since day one, and still does at 92,000 miles.
