Default Stupid newbie question

I did try searching and found nothing. I guess I must be the only one that can't set his clock or trip meter.
2011 Cross Country.
I tried following the directions in the little owners book, but no matter what I do with the mode switch I keep going between FM, AM, AUX and never get to the clock or trip meter setup. I must be doing something very wrong. Any hints?

Thanks...

Using the dash selection button which is on the front of the left switch pod. Sitting in the seat, it is on the back side. Once you find the correct button the sequence will work.

Like VRat said, the MODE button you're looking for is not the stereo mode button. It's on the left handle bar, accessible with your index finger. Press on it to switch between trips, and press and hold to reset a trip or change clock.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Thanks guys for the quick response. Found the correct mode button, set the clock, lost it.... But now I know and will get it done. Thanks again. Do any of you guys have the Vic trunk? I ordered one with the bike and was wondering how they were.

I love mine. I can go for a long ride get off for lunch and put my helmet or helmets in the trunk and they are secure. The wife loves the support and the speakers. The one thing i'm doing is getting the ipod cables so i have music whenever i want it...

Ron,

Your new XC looks great, Congratulations! I have a blue 2011 XC w/trunk on order at the Victory shop in Griswold, CT. I'm down on the shoreline in East Lyme. Where did you take delivery of yours?

Red... I took delivery in Hartford (New England Cycle) where one of my son's friends runs the sales dept. Got a good deal on the bike...better than Blue Book trade in value and cost on the trunk, which they are going to install gratis. Got lucky to partially make up for the hosing I expected to get for a trade in bike I only had since last Nov.

My son grew up in Niantic so I am familiar withthe East Lyme area. I ride through that area a lot during the "riding season". Maybe we can meet for a coffee one day and compare bikes and buzz around the area for a while.

I have the trunk on my 2011 XC. It is really great when the GF is riin with me. Between the bags and the trunk we load up with a LOT O STUFF. Most times when I'm riding by myself I take it off. They say it takes 30 seconds, I think it is more like 20 seconds to put it on or take it off.
