    Is it possible to adjust the display screen brightness, I can't see any mention in the handbook. I could do with it a bit brighter at night.
    Thanks

    I don't think it can be changed. The intensity of the brightness is controlled by a small sensor on the dash. One possibility is to put a small piece of black tape over the sensor which should give you full brightness all the time. Rob.

    I think that is backwards.....if the sensor doesn't sense any light and believes it is dark - it will likely make the dash run in the dim mode all the time. Does the dash light on the bike change from day to night?

    Yes, the display goes a sort of orange at night. A bit disappointing that it can't be altered. probably to keep the cost down?
