Clock

So my 919 doesn't have a clock, and I keep meaning to ask, does anyone have a good solution for a small timekeeper I can add to the gauges or some other place? Maybe a keychain watch that can put up with bouncing on the bike?

Thanks!

There is a sweet little rig that clamps right on the handlebar between the risers. Couple guys on here have a couple different solutions

Over to the Aerostitch website --- they have a whole page dedicated to time keeping. They sell a couple cheap foam pads designed to enable you to strap on a standard wrist watch to your handlebars.

Weird - mine has a digital clock - push the right hand rubber button under the rev counter and the trip meter changes to a clock. Did the early ones not get it?


There are some really nice motorcycle clocks around unfortunately they are expensive. On a previous ride sans clock I ended up finding a appealing $5 digital watch and I trimmed off the strap, cleaned up the plastic and mounted that with 3M double sided tape. Worked a treat and look sweet too.

That's a bit too much 'style', for any Honda.

Well, maybe not for a fury.

As a followup, I ended up calling the clock4bikes people, had a nice conversation that included talking about a $32 Seiko clock they sell on eBay as well as the $40 one on the site, same free shipping, warranty, and extra battery, and ended up buying one of them.

Got it two days later, with the hand written note, and it looks perfect on the handlebar, so that was a good purchase and good people to buy from.

that looks sweet. Glad it worked out. I put one of those on my wishlist as well. I have a clock but the trip meter is my gas gauge so I never use it.

How does a laptimer work? I assuming you don't press start and stop at 150 mph... Is there a sensor of some kind on the track that sets it off?

you should have two trip meters if yours is 04+?

That looks sweet, I think I could even read it while riding. Does anyone else have trouble with their factory clock gaining 5 min?

Correct, A and B. One is my fuel gauge, the other I use once in while. I usually don't care how far my trips are so I leave it on the fuel trip.

Invariably I forget every spring how to set the stupid clock so it never has the right time, and I check my watch over fumbling with trying to press the button with gloves on so the clock never gets used. Had they either given me a fuel gauge or a separate LCD for the clock, I would certainly use it.

Not the best pic, but you can see the clock mounted. This is from a challenge we did back in 2006 where you had to find a ghosttown and eat a snack bar there.
