KPH vs MPH in the US

I have a Canadian bike with the speedo in Kilometers per hour. I don't know if it's legal or not, I've registered it in two states with no issues. Anyone know for sure?

did you ever get pulled over while riding ? did the cop say anything about it? although chances are he wouldnt even notice.

other than that?

I've never heard of it being an issue. I have seen converstion kits on the net if you really wanted to change it to mph.

Is it a digital speedo? Most can be changed. I've got a friend with an imported SV650S who never had any problems. Just gotta watch your speed from time to time. I beleive her analog speedo had markings for MPH as well but much smaller on the inside of the KPH.
