    Hi all, new to the forum!
    Was wondering if anyone knows if it's possible to switch from kph to mph and vise versa? It seems we can tweek everything on our gauges except that, which is standard on every digital speedo I've come across.
    Thanks for any info!

    US spec bikes can, Canadian spec bikes can't.

    I don't know why. :mad:

    Yeah, I have a 2012 Canadian bike. Before that I had a 2009 that I bought new.
    I knew that it was very easy to flip back and forth from miles per hour to kilometers just a one button push on the US spec bike.
    My 2012 doesn't do that....so I calibrated my speedo-healer to convert the speed.
    Not a big deal but sure seemed like a big pain in the balls since on my 2009 I only had to push a button!

    There’s gotta be a way to bypass that! I highly doubt Yamaha designed a entirely new interface that’s identical without that feature. Maybe a recalibration at a dealer? If I find something I’ll pass it on!
