Is there any way to switch the spedo from kilometers to miles an hour? When i asked the guy at the dealer ship, he responded in his smartass voice 'buy it in the states'. Any help guys? Thanks in advance.

On a 2000 model if you press the select button and hold for two seconds it will change from KPH to MPH. Push and hold again to change back. I assume the newer models are the same way.

I've tried that, all that does it change it to the clock. It's an 04 r6. I know there are lots of USA'ers in here so maybe you could let me know where appx. on the display the Mph shows up. If it's in the same spot as my K/h, maybe i'm sol.

umm actually if you'd look in the manual you can change if you want it to show in mph or kph.

ah okay i thought it was hold "RESET" and "SELECT" at the same time and it only changed the clock. BUT, what the manual doesn't tell you is you can't be on the clock.

1. Push "SELECT" until on Trip 1
2. Push "RESET" and "SELECT" until screen blinks and switches over to kph or mph. it's a long 2 seconds.

Alright cdemon, maybe im not a good instruction follower, but that doesn't seem to work. I know it can change somehow cause you can faintly make out the M/h above the Km/h when you turn the bike on. However, i did find out how to set my brightness and shift light

So there i was, screwing around with the select and reset button, trying different things, when the word "DIAC" or "DIAL" came on. I have no clue what this was, but it was followed by a few numbers. I cycled through them and after a few pushes the fuel pump started priming again. It's probably some settings i'm not supposed to screw around with so i walked away. Any ideas on what i was doing guys?

good question 04aresix i dont know, but ya you can convert the mph to kmh because i was trying to mess with my shift light and i changed it and mines a 03 so i think what everyones trying to say above is accurate, good luck its pretty easy :hammer
