You just haven't tried the right combination yet.
Maybe G Man will know it. He did have a bike like that.

The temp gauge in celcious? What is the speedo in?

Does the odo read the miles at all?

It shouldn't matter. It is a North American bike, It should be able to switch back and forth. (not certain)
Contact your local dealer service Dpt. and they should be able to tell you.
Maybe Larry G will check this thread.

Moved this to the tech forum to help with it!!

Jeeps I don't believe they switch over... Remember... you're dealing with digital inputs on a analog gauge style cluster!

I'm not very familiar with that bike to start with. I just know every bike I've seen with dig gauges can switch back an forth.
If it has an analog speedo. That should answer the question.
Seems that if it was an American issue bike. It would be big numbers in mph.

The big numbers are mph. It would be the other way around on Euro or Canadian bikes. wouldn't it?

Have Blade, the owner of my 9R...look it up in the service manual. I can't remember if I shipped the owners manual or if it's locked in the bike... if he's got it..he can check there as well....
