Speedo Conversion

I've been searching all over for the answer to this question but as of yet I have had no luck...so here goes.

I have removed my standard clocks from my CBR400 NC29 (origanlly the bike reads in KPH) and was thinking about using a MPH mechanical speedo. I know that if I use a speedo converter on a KPH clock it will give me a MPH reading.

But if I use a MPH clock and run it straight from the origanl speedo cable on the bike with no KPH-MPH converter, will i get a my speed reading MPH, or will it still be in KPH?

Re: Speedo Conversion

Yeah, the ratio will stay the same on the clock, tho depending on the overlay it can still be read in MPH
