If I was proficient enough to make and upload a video of what I did, I would.

Well after trying several times to reset clock as per handbook and advice I managed to resolve the issue by taking my timepiece of my olde GS
Low tech but it works
The watch will now have a far smoother ride in its dotage

I vaguely remember that the mile-o-meter should be in the odo position when setting the clock, but can't find anything about it, so might be for another bike or even total bollocks. But it is free, so worth a try.
Stop making sense

Old school is best, I remember having a Kawasaki 750 in the 80s and it got on my nerves having to try and roll my sleeve up to see the time so bought a cheap digital watch and superglued it between the clocks.
