ISO question

I'm away from home for 2 weeks and was wondering whats the trick to get my K-5 to do ISO 51400 ,,, it jumps from 6400 to 12800 when i turn the dial after hitting the iso button?

Thanks I forgot my manual.

Go to Custom setting 1 menu, and on line 3, set expanded sensitivity to "on". That opens up ISO to 80-51,200
