One button is the "select" with which you change from ODO to TRIP and back. And the other button is "reset" to reset your TRIP meter.

    If you press "SELECT" and you can only see TRIP and no ODO then maybe you should see the dealer about that cluster.

SOURCE: For Pulsar's Best Performance??????

You are rightly going, go ahead and take precaution to keep constant speed. After 2000Km you can run for getting optimum milieage from it.
I had used to run Pulsar and Unicorn and served 3 years in Honda Service Department. 
Avoid much using break and over gear transmission will also help you in maintainging a good mileage.

SOURCE: How to increase the milage of my CD Deluxe bike It

Mileage is affected by many things. Here are some things you can do to increase fuel mileage.

Make sure engine is in good condition and timing is correct. Fresh sparkplug and clean air filter. Tires need to be properly inflated and be sure none of the brakes are dragging. Good quality clean fuel is a must also. If the bike is chain drive or belt drive be sure the tension is correct and not too tight. Modify your riding habits. Really fast takeoffs consume extra fuel.

Hope this is what you are looking for.

SOURCE: hello i hava a yamaha tzr 50 04 plate and the

i had the same problem. On the left side of your wheel (from looking at it from the front) there is a small speed dector and this is most likely where the problem is. 1.try taking the cable in and out of the speed dectector. 2.if this still doesnt work then take the whole wheel off and look at the inside of the speed detector it maybe full of "black gunk" you will want to clean this out and then just dabble a little bit of 10 w 30se oil into it, just to help lube it up a bit (other oil based lube could be used) 3.if neither of these get it working you will probally need a new one

When change air and oil filters

Every 6000km/3500mile or every year. It's best to change oil and oil filter at the start of every driving season if the bike was longer than 2 months sitting regardless of milage.
Drive safe.
Hope I helped!

Hey i bought my car in march 2006, i have a 99 honda accord lx v4 i am having trouble with the maintenance check light. when i start the car and the light flashes about ten times before it turns off....

Look at the owners manual it will tell you how to turn it off. But before you do that check your milage with the maintance interval list located in the owners manual. The maintance light goes on when a certain milage is obtained which will describe the type of maintence is required.
