clock keeps resetting

Hey guys, Ok I have a small problem. The clock on my 03 GSXR 750 keeps going haywire on me. it was fine for about the first week or so that I had it, now everytime I reset it it will last for a day or two or sometimes just till I shut the bike off and then its wrong again. The trip odometer and stuff is fine jus the clock goes nuts. I don't know it its related at all but sometimes my bike seems to start really weak. It always starts but it turns over a little weak sometimes, could a low batt be causing this? Im getting annoyed. Any ideas? Thanks guys.

Check your connection. I don't think a low battery could reset your clock, but it could cause your engine to turn over slowly.

someone correct me if I'm wrong, but a weak battery is pretty likely if the bike cranks slow sometimes. the clock is probably related in some way, if the battery is weak, it may not have enough juice to keep the clock correct, and it resets. I may be wrong here, and probably am though, so take this with a grain of salt.

If the engine cranks, there's definately enough juice for the clock to work.

I had the same problem in my cage. It's not a weak batter, but a loose connection, when things run fine it stays seated, when the clock hiccups, is when it looses the connection. Somtimes it's seated far enough that the bike starts fine, sometimes it's wiggled up and the bike barely gets the juice to start. Clean the connections and tighten it.

DL and Pucky are right. If the bike starts its not a batt issue. Check the connections!

Another possibility could be that it's doing it because it's a GSXR. Go YAMAHA! Just kidding. Let's hope it's something that simple. (connection)
