    KPH to MPH Speedo?????

    Hi Guys, I have a 1997 Bird that was imported to the uk all those years ago and still has its KPH clock. I have just bought a MPH clock for the use in the UK and was wondering is it a direct replacement or would I have to fit some kind of convertor, and if so could anyone reccommed somewhere I could get one.

    Thanks guys

    Sorry Guys 99 and earlier birds have the anologue (needle pointer) speedo's and cant be changed by the push of a button like they can on the digital read out dash's.

    The speedo should be a direct replacement with no need for a converter.

    I know it just wouldnt be right to kill all the stupid people that we meet..

    But do you think it would be appropriate to just remove all of the warning labels and let nature take its course.

    Re: KPH to MPH Speedo?????

    Thanks guys for the feedback, when i get the new clock (in the post as we speak) I will get it fitted and take it for a test, if im doing 120 mph through the town I may have to look at it again, but with a little luck it will be straight swap.

    Re: KPH to MPH Speedo?????

    Hi!

    I've just bought 2004r Bird and have problem how to change odometer from miles to kilometers. I found how to change speedometer but nothing about daily trip, and total distance. Do you know how to do it?

    I have digital meters and there is some combination with pressing buttons to change miles to kilometers. With speedometer I know how to do, but odometer still is in miles.
