'02 954RR Clocks MPH/KPH problem...

Hi folks.

I'm looking at buying a 2002 blade, from the photos I've been emailed it looks in great condition. I can't actually get to see the bike in the flesh for about another two weeks, the bike is on the next Island over from me and it'll take a while to sort out time off work and the ferry e.t.c...

The problem is this, the current owner says the clocks are marked in KPH, but the speedo actually reads in MPH. The odometer is supposed to be in miles too as far as I know. I didn't think it was possible for the speedo to be marked in KPH but to be reading in MPH? I've read the UK spec '02-'03 models speedo's can switch between KPH and MPH, but as far as I know it's not possible for a UK spec bike speedo to be showing KPH but reading MPH?

I've also read the Euro spec '02 blade speedo's can only show KPH. The only thing I can think of is that the bike might be a Euro import with one of those electronic speedo converter gizmo's fitted? If this is the case will the odometer be converted to miles too or remain in kilometres?

Sorry about all the questions, but this bike looks in great condition and I really want it! I'm just hoping someone knowledgeable can help.

Thanks for any help you can offer guys...

You need to push the buttons on the bottom of the guage. I have had this happen when I am trying to set the clock. It is very frustrating because if you do not push both buttons at the same time it will do funny things. Try pushing the buttons at the same time, individually or a combination of things.

As I said, mine has done this and I can't remember what I did to fix it other then play with the buttons.

on my UK 929 and 954 you can change the speed only between mph and km/h but the ode always reads in mile. I would guess some bright spark changed it accidently to km/h and has never worked out that you even can, or how to, change it back!

Some other country models allow other changes, but uk is only the speed you can change.
