As a first time Wing owner, I just bought a 96 SE, I'm hearing different stories about overdrive on the bike. When I ride in 5th at 60mph (100km/h) The bike is revving at 2850 rpm, some people tell me the O/D should automatically cut in and the light on the dash should come on then the revs should drop and some people(mostly the place where I bought it) are saying there is no O/D on the model. Which is it? Last thing, the cruise control doesn't work, could this affect it?

Any and all help appreciated.
