Greeting at start-up

Post by Magic23 » Sun Jan 07, 2018 6:20 pm



Hi all,
I have a 2003 GL1800 and my question is if I can change the start-up greeting from '"Goldwing" to something else.

Not on the '03. That feature came later on, maybe '06 or so? You only have a choice of the greeting or not.

I just turned the thing OFF

for me, it is very annoying and it delays me being able to get the Odometer reading quickly when I am topping off the gas tank.

I don't have an ego that needs to be polished with a special greeting.

Thanks Steve for your help. The bike is new to me and I'm still trying to figure it out.

This is an old article. Doesn't specify a year, but it may help. I know I could do it on 2004.
