Resetting change oil message

I changed my oil today in both of my Ranchers. How do I reset the message on the display that says change oil? I looked and could not find anything on how to do it. I also looked in the manual I downloaded and it really did not say anything about how to do it.

Press and hold the hourmeter/odometer/tripmeter select button and turn the ignition switch to "on" for more than 5 seconds and the indicator message should go off.

Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

How often does the indicator come on? Does it ever indicate anything else?

It comes on every 600 miles or 100 hours, whichever comes first.

No, it's just an oil change indicator.

Both of mine have just under 150 miles and both have less than 34 hours.

Thank you and I will try that this weekend when I have them out.

The initial oil change is 100 miles or 20 hours, whichever comes first. Did your oil change indicator come on at 100 miles or 20 hours? I didn't know if the indicator would come on for the initial oil change or not.
