If I don't use the bike (96 1500) for a few days, the clock comes on with a different time.If I use the bike regulary, the ckock is fine. Weird, huh?

Fast? Slow?

Are you also losing radio presets?

Some of the GL15 clocks would go crazy fast but I think that was when the bike was running.

Keep it plugged into a battery tender whenever it's parked

"Keep it plugged into a battery tender whenever it's parked"

That may work but it doesn't solve the problem.

If it works, at least we'll know what the problem is.

How much time loss in a week?

These clocks aren't known for their accuracy.

My bike's clock, like everything about my bike, is fast.

There is a known problem with the clocks on gl1500s around that model year. Too fast, too slow etc.
