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