Display Brightness

I'm not sure if I'm posting in the right spot. I just bought a Bonneville bobber today. I love the bike so far. I kinda feel like an idiot for this, but I can't figure out how to adjust the brightness on the display. Is it possible to dim the backlight?

Congrats! I am not aware that's even possible, check the owners manual.

The Hi-Beam indicator is overly bright at night as well. I have a piece of tape over it, but would love to not have tape as my 'fix.'

I tilted my instruments slightly to alleviate the brightness of the high beam indicator. It only takes a few degrees to help!

Thanks for the replies. yes! I can deal with the brightness level of the display, but I agree about the high beam indicator. It's so bright that I don't even want to use the high beams

Just a thought but maybe adding a 70% or 80% window tint would help knock down the brightness (not to mention sun glare) without affecting visibility of the cluster.

Clever idea I never would've thought of. I may give that a shot

Agreed - good idea. I don't mind the display brightness, but the hi-beam indicator is just less than looking at the sun
