TFT screen brightness adjustment?

At the risk of missing the obvious, is there a way of dimming the brightness of the TFT display on the 950S.

I find it glares significantly and is distracting when riding at night. Especially so in the countryside when there's no ambient light.

I can't seem to find any instructions on it in the manual.

     I believe the answer to your question is No I'm afraid, the only settings we have is the Backlight in the menu which has only three settings Day, Night and Auto.
    No adjustment for dimming

    I did not found such setting. Only black or white. Maybe you can fix the issue with some protective film, like the ones from Speedo Angeles.

    Good idea. I'll look into that. Thanks

    The display can be dimmed - see page 152 of the owners manual.  Settings are hi, medium & low.  I agree it is too bright when dark, that's why I changed mine.  Hope that helps........ :002:

    Ducati Al page 152 on the 950s is about the pin code

    2017 Ducati Multistrada manual - its actually page 151 & 152.  If you chaps are lucky enough to be 950S owners then perhaps you can't change your backlight level, although I'd be surprised.....mine is a 2018 non S with a B&W screen.  At least your manual page numbers may not be the same....

    As far as Iím aware there is only the white for day and black for night settings on the 950S. Auto is the default which switches between the two automatically. Works fine for me.
