It's in your manual, otherwise it's pretty easy.
- Press and hold SEL (top button) as you turn the ignition to the ON position
- (It's the first thing you get to change around at this point) ours the bottom button to change where your shift indicator will start flashing. Press top button when done
- Then it'll let you select the point at which your shift indicator will actually start to light up.
- For all the other stuff it's as simple as pressing SEL (top button) during normal operation

Thanks, I'll give it a shot. What about fuel indicator? My 06 had one.

The indicator is the "gal" .. At full tank it'll read "0.0" and climb as you use fuel. Your main tank holds about 3.5 gallons. Once your main is drained it'll switch to your reserve and your indicator will start flashing. Your reserve holds about another 1.2 gal

Thanks. I need to know what's the best setup for shift indicators if I'm just doing city riding. What rpm range for each gear should I set it at?

Unfortunately you can't set the indicator for each gear. What i did for a while was keep the indicator in the mid range. I had it start flashing around 10k.

I tried to set the shift indicators. You can go from 0 to 13000 rpms. What rpm should I start out at to move to second gear?

You can really shift at any RPM range. Like i mentioned before i kept my shift indicator at the range of the power band for the streets. How aggressive do you ride? 10k was perfect for me

I set mine at 4000 and it blinks when I'm in 6th gear doing 56 miles an hour. I am going with trial and error to see what's best. When you initially set the rev indicator, you can set it 4-13000 rpms, and then do the 200 increments after. I thought that the 4000 is when you would want to shift from 1st to second and then you set the increments from gear to gear. Not the case I guess unless I'm doing something wrong or missing out on something.
