New goldwing owner need some help

Postby jrw » Sat Nov 07, 2009 11:55 am



Hi to all.
I just bought a used 2008 wing that does not have the owners manual with it. My question is how does one change the opening ceramoney. It has the couples name that were the previous owners, the bike was purchased from a dealer, and I'm waiting on the manual to come in. but if someone would be kind enough to walk me through this I would be very grateful
Thanks in advance
JRW

From the owner's manual:

The opening/ending ceremony can be turned off:

  1. Push the MODE button to cycle to the ‘‘OPENING/ENDING CEREMONY’’ screen.
  2. Push the DISP. button to cycle between on/off of the display.
  3. Push the MODE button to select the ‘‘SET’’ function.
  4. Selecting the ‘‘SET’’ function locks in the on/off option for future use.

Special Message for Opening/Ending Ceremony

  1. Push the MODE button to cycle to the ‘‘OPENING/ENDING CEREMONY’’ screen.
  2. Push the TRIP button then the DISP. button, hold both buttons down.
  3. The ‘‘MODE’’ on the display will change to ‘‘SET’’. The display should now show ‘‘STANDARD’’ in the middle line.
  4. Use the DISP. button to select the ‘‘SPL’’ function. The display should now show ‘‘SPECIAL!’’ in the middle line.
  5. Push the TRIP button to select the ‘‘NEXT’’ function. The display should now show ‘‘CHANGE OK?’’ in the middle line.

Rob thanks for the welcome it is my first wing and so far it is so sweet. We haven't been able to take any trips yet but just some local rides around here it sure does beat my old vulcan.
