You will need 2 pens (with caps) or 2 keys... Make sure these 2 objects are not too sharp or too pointed.
Press both on the rubber knobs at the same time and watch the time change. The key must be in the ignition but not necessarily in the run position (this is to keep anyone from messing with your clock since they don't have the key.
Get a feel for changing the Hour and the Minutes separately and you are in business.

On my ''02, this info is not correct. Only one semi-pointed object is needed...and no key required. I use the cap off of a Sharpie. Pointed, but not too pointed.

Perhaps this has changed on the '05s & '06s.

Is the '06 different than the '05?

On mine, which I just set, I just push and hold the button marked "Clock Mode" until the hour portion of the display starts blinking, edit the time and then let it sit for 30 seconds and it resumes from the newly set time. Couldn't be easier. Maybe it was one of the improvements over the old models. Now, I'm really glad I waited to buy my bike. Maybe if I'd waited another year they'd have figgered out how to connect the clock display to the GPS for auto-update.

Exactly how mine worked. Guess I assumed it could not be that simple .... afterall it is a BMW!

As always thanks to all for the feedback!
