This model uses a thin-film-transistor liquid-crystal display (TFT LCD) for good contrast and readability in various lighting conditions. However, due to the nature of this technology, it is normal for a small number of pixels to be inactive.

Stop the vehicle before making any setting changes. Changing settings while riding can distract the operator and increase the risk of an accident.


The speedometer shows the vehicle’s traveling speed.

The display can be switched between kilometers and miles. See “Unit” on page .


The tachometer shows the engine speed, as measured by the rotational velocity of the crankshaft, in revolutions per minute (r/min).

Do not operate the engine in the tachometer red zone.

Red zone: 10600 r/min and above

    ODO will lock at 999999 and cannot be reset.

Fuel reserve tripmeter:
  1. When the fuel tank reserve level has been reached, F-TRIP appears automatically and begins recording distance traveled from that point.

    After refueling and traveling some distance, F-TRIP will automatically disappear.

  1. TRIP1 and TRIP2 show the distance traveled since they were last set to zero.

    TRIP1 and TRIP2 will reset to 0 and begin counting again after 9999.9 has been reached.

Average fuel economy:
  1. The average fuel economy display can be set to either “km/L” or “L/100km” or “MPG” as well. See page .

    After resetting the average fuel economy display, “–.-” will be shown until the vehicle has traveled 1 km.

Instantaneous fuel economy:
  1. The instant fuel economy display can be set to either “km/L” or “L/100km” or “MPG” as well. See page .

    • If traveling at speeds under 10 km/h (6 mi/h), “–.-” will be displayed.
    • The instantaneous fuel economy function should be used for general reference only. Do not use this figure to estimate the distance that can be traveled on the current tank of fuel.
Air temperature:
  1. The air temperature is displayed from –9 °C (16 °F) to 50 °C (122 °F) in 1 °C (1 °F) increments. The temperature displayed may vary from the actual ambient temperature.

    • “–” will be displayed if the detected temperature is lower.
    • “–” will be displayed if the detected temperature is higher.
Coolant temperature:
  1. The coolant temperature is displayed from 40 °C (104 °F) to 124 °C (255 °F) in 1 °C (1 °F) increments.

    • If the vehicle coolant temperature is below 40 °C (104 °F) the coolant temperature display will read “Lo”
    • If the vehicle coolant temperature is above 124 °C (255 °F) the coolant temperature display will read “Hi”
Fuel Meter:
  1. The fuel meter indicates the amount of fuel in the fuel tank. The display segments of the fuel meter disappear from “F” (full) towards “E” (empty) as the fuel level decreases. When the last segment starts flashing, refuel as soon as possible.

Fuel consumption trip meter:
  1. Displays how much fuel has been consumed since the trip meter was last reset.

Trip time:
  1. Displays engine running time.
