Updated instrument panel in 04

Hi,

I'm new here and I'm thinking of buying a Honda 919/Hornet 900 (its a Hornet here in Australia), out of a shortlist of four bikes. It's obvious where the 919/900 is concerned that there are advantages in buying an '04 or later, such as adjustable suspension, revised injection mapping and changes to the dashboard. But I can't see where it has a clock.

Anyone got a photo of the dash all lit up, showing where the clock is? Surely it's to big to go in the LCD panel, which is odometer or trip meter isn't it?

No pix anywhere on the Web, and I forgot to check at the local dealer when I had a look last week. I know it's no big deal but I'm curious just the same.

Thanks.

Peter

Peter,

The clock display is within the same LCD panel that the odometer and tripmeter use.

Clock display is controlled by a rubber button below the tachometer.

LOL, I had the same issue when I bought mine, I made the dealer find the key and fire up the ignition. Funny thing was he was sure it didn't have one...but I found it.

Peter> As the above post says, there is a fairly large digit clock in the common multi-function LCD panel in the speedometer, even on the Aussie model. The button under the tacho toggles the clock function, the LCD also serves as an odometer and two trip meters. The digits of the clock are pretty large for a bike, about double the size of those in my old ZZR600.

However, if you really want a picture of an '06 Hornet clock I can get you one...

Peter,

Here's a recent picture (taken ten minutes ago). I caught the clock mid-blink, so the colon in-between the digits is missing . The bike has only done 465-odd kilometres (I've only had her since the 21st of December), not 1047.

Hope this eases your mind .
