Heya -

Is there a way to change the default display on the OBC?

Every time I start up, it is in "mile to empty mode", even with a full tank of fuel. I'd like it to stay on the TPM display, just like I left it.

When my RT is started, the OBC displays whatever readout was showing when it was last shut off.
What year is your RT? Mine is a 2012. Just checked it sitting in the garage and it was on TPM when I pulled in and now it is back to max range.

As a test, try leaving it on a different screen. It may have something to do in which it takes considerable movement to get a TPM reading.

Mine does the same thing. I usually like mine on the MPG. However, when I restart the cycle it always goes to the "miles to empty". So mine does not go back to the screen that was displayed when I shut it off.

I'm glad it's not just me then :)

I was going to reply that my 2011 R1200RT always defaults to whatever was on the OBC display but couldn't understand why some seemed to default to miles-to-empty so I just experimented a bit.

I never use the "stop" switch and my OBC always displays what was displayed last. I found if the stop switch is used to shut the bike off and left in the stop position until after the key is turned I got the miles-to-empty display. If the stop switch is placed in the middle position before turning the key, whatever was displayed last comes up.

Interesting - thanks for the research. I always use the kill switch and then turn off the key with the switch in the default position. This morning the bike was displaying temperature, which is how I left it when I parked yesterday. If I have it displaying TPM, it always (seems) to come up in miles to empty.
