What must be done to make this reset 12mn ?

Start the bike without touching anything except the clutch lever and the start ?

The side stand must be in a precise position or whatever ?

Other things to consider ?

Start the bike from cold. Let the bike idle (don't touch the throttle) until the radiator coolant fan comes on. Start timing for 12 minutes and continue to idle. After 12 minutes, key off without touching the throttle.

Just did it to mine, 15000 miles. Made a big difference. I even did it to my 350 Beta and it cleaned up its running. I guess it's a EFI thing. :028:

Ok, I thought it was 12 minutes from boot !!

I repeat the operation.

I made it to myself.

Sleeping. Alarm clock rings. Didn't touch it. Stay in bed for 12 more minutes. Alarm clock rings again. Stopped. Wake up.

I can't feel nothing. Poop as usual.

Also tried this this morning.
Problem is I can't seem to wake up after the first ring.
Maybe should I contact my manufacturer ;-)
