Switching from miles to kilometers and vice-versa

Hi, I cannot figure out how to change from miles to kilometrs and vice-versa on my2007 Honda 919. I also read the owner's manual and could not find that bit.

I was not aware that one can switch the odometer back and forth between miles and kilometres.
Here in Canada one gets dual unit faces on the speedo but the odometer is only in Kms.

Wow... that was quick!
Mine is a US 919, I also get the dual face, the larger graduations being in mph, the smaller in kph, the odometer reading is in miles. Is your meter the same mcromo44?
I am not sure though if it is doable, but I assume so based on many Japanese bikes that can be changed from miles to kilometers.
It just feels more manageable to me if it is metric....

It's analog. It can't be changed. Other bikes with digital odometers do usually have a miles to km toggle.

The Canadian 919s have the larger graduations in kph, the smaller in mph.
Maybe a used Euro or Canadian speedo would take care of you.
I think the ECU is common, so the odo reading should be function of the speedo alone, but I could be very wrong on this point.

We have metric everything- maybe a wrecker in NZ or Aus could send you speedo and you could bolt it on and see what happened.

The odometer reading is digital, but I tried different combination of switch presses, and ignition on while a left or right switches are pressed but nothing happened.
Thank you folks for the input... I shall survive the difference...

The odometer has a fixed display in the units corresponding with the speedometer.

My 02 was an American mph bike. I swapped cluster guts for an 06 Canadian kph board. It was not a direct plug and play, had to repin a few wires to make it work. Pretty easy, all you need is the circuit board and jumper harness.
