Posted 08 March 2012 - 12:01 PM

Just picked up a 2008 FJR1300A, it was an American Bike that was imported into Canada. On the MFD It currently displays everything in MPH/MPG/F/..., does anyone know how to get it to display in KMH/L/100KM/C/....? I know on my sleds it is just a jumper and they show you how in the owners manual but, I looked in the Owners manual and nothing? I haven't purchased a service manual yet (Just got the bike on the weekend) I am sure it's in there. I can't see them making a new module or software for the few bikes they sell in Canada.

Thanks.

And according to that, it doesn't work on Gen II FJRs.....

Is that really true?

I suggest the question to you if it's untrue...you find the documentation. I know I've seen repeated on the forum time-to-time from what I believe are reputable sources that it is true.

Well, excuuuuuse me! So sorry, unlike you, I don't have the time to be on the forum all day and read everything that goes on here.

Source link (one anyway) added to the FAQ for your laziness. Incidentally, I found it in less than 30 seconds searching for +miles +kilometers +change. Hardly an all day operation......

Smooches Spinny! I'm catching up quickly on BMR points with you now that snow is melting. :P

I imported an '08 to Canada as well. You cannot change the digital display to metric settings, however, you still have the km/h scale on the speedo face, albeit in smaller typeface.

Haha...That's a LOT of reading. If it really bugs you, I know some have found replacement dash indicators on line. So you could get a new dash face that reads KPH instead of MPH. You'll still be screwed with the temp and MPG reading though.

Or you can use your Gen II junk pile as a trade-in on a nice Galaxy Blue '05. You can change the scale from MPH to KPH and back all day long on those babies. ;)

Not sure if it is going to bug me yet, haven't really ridden the bike yet. I am in North Bay and we still have three feet of snow, riding season probably won't start for another 4 weeks. just thought if it was easy I would get it done. I will just wait and see. I don't plan on staring at it while riding anyways.

Not the perfect solution but... GPS? Easy to read and can be either K's or M's!

That's how I roll on my US 2006. When I cross the border, I change the Zumo's display to read in the units of the locale I'm in!
