    Wake up GP1200 MFD without starting?

    Hey everyone - OK... I've tried every combination of buttons, sequences, etc etc I can think of in order to try to get the MFD on my GP1200 to wake up with the ski shut off, but nothing seems to work except starting it, at which point it wakes up right away.

    Is there something I'm missing? Lots of times I want to check fuel or oil level, or check the hour meter but do NOT want to start it, such as last weekend when we had them at our campsite and the last thing I wanted to do was roar the 1200 to life and annoy everybody.

    Thanks

    I've tried also. I don't think it's possible.

    only way is to bump the starter for a spilt second. You dont need the engine to light off for it to wake up. Just bump it.

    My success with that is about 80/20 against....sometimes I can bump (or even extended crank) 3, 4, 5 times (with no intention to start it) and the MFD will refuse to wake up..only coming alive after the engine actually starts.

    Ok, thanks everybody - not sure why Yamaha decided this was a good idea, but chock it up to stupid engineering I guess.
