How do you add your logged miles on the 6501charleyadams

If my battery dies and I want to re-input my total odometer mileage....how do I do it? I have the 6501, but my manual is for a 6500.

Should be the same procedure - have you tried it yet?

Them manual for the 6500 does not show that there is a way to add miles. I bought the bike at the same time, so it is not a problem at this time, it is just that I am curious as to how, and if, it can be done.

I thought I remembered reading the procedure when I was setting mine up. I distinctly remember saying to myself, "Cool , this means I can keep to total miles accurate even after a battery change." So far the battery has been holding out for almost a year.

Hit the reset button on the back, then set up the computer again - it's the second or third thing the 'puter has you configure. It only lets you set it when the computer has been reset completely, and you are reconfiguring (entering time, gearing info, etc.).
Thanks so much for the help!!!charleyadams

I have a related question for the flight deck experts. According to the manual I can support up to 4 bikes with separate settings. For the life of me I can't figure out how to add a bike, so to speak. They give instructions on how select between the bikes though. I would like to avoid resetting it and redoing the initial setup, but if there isn't any other way then I can do that.

Also, does the multiple bike feature maintain a separate odometer for each bike, or is it just different gearing and wheel size settings?

I haven't actually done this yet, so don't sue me, but... when you hit the reset button on the back, the first thing you can do after choosing miles/kilos and entering odo distance, is select which bike number: presumably with the A key (key?!), and then confirm with the B button. So if you choose another nunber (say, 2-4), then I guess your settings for '1' will be unchanged. Also, as the odo is entered before, I presume that this is cumulative for all four settings.
