Need Your Odometer

I have a Canadian '00 WR, and the odometer is in kilometers. Yea I know we're eventually suppose to convert to the metric system, but I guess I'm getting old (36) and stubborn. And it's getting to be a pain to do the math conversion in my head while riding. If anybody wants to sell their odometer that they've removed, please email me at

PS: I have a riding buddy that bought a CAN XR650R, and he is having the same problem. I know he is also interested in a US odometer (if there's more than one of you that want to get rid of yours).

Highly recommend the ICO or Analog speedo from Baja. You could also try a mountain bike computer, but don't expect too much durability.

Don't be trying to do the math for a Metric to US conversion at speed.

Thanks for all the advice guys. I have thought about the bicycle computer thing, and the actual speedometer thing as well. I just thought that someone out there might have their odometer sitting on a shelf gathering dust, and want to get rid of it for a lot less than the $65 Baja Designs wants for there bottom end speedo. I'll come up with something!
