I am running a WR450F in the three SCORE Baja races, and would like to have my Canadian bike read in MPH.

Does anyone know if there is a switch combo (ie: Reset+Select1 3sec) to have it switch from Km/hr to MPH.

My 09 Raptor700 does if I hold down the one button while turning on the key.

Any ideas?

I don't know if the Canadian bike is the same, but my 07 changes by holding down the SLCT2 button for 2 seconds.

I find thats its not worth knowing how fast your going, cause thats when you panic:smirk:

My bikes got a knacked speedo drive so i don't know how fast i'm going.

Good job too, i over took a buddy of mine in a ploughed field, at the next stop he told me i was doing 70mph.

On the plus side i'm keeping the miles down on it.:banghead:

Tried the SELECT2, but did not work.

I'm trying to switch it over, as SCORE does it course layout with MILE markers. It is important to know where my next pit is. Also when racing, I really don't want to do math conversions in my head when hitting the silt beds.

Any other thoughts?

Select 2 button for a few seconds worked on my bike.

But I can't seam to figure out if there is an acutal odometer or if there are ONLY two trip settings. How am i suppose to keep track of the mileage of the bike with a resetable tripmeter. :banghead:

That is all we get in the States. Tripmeter A/B which will reset when the battery is disconnected. We do have MPH/KPH though:crazy:

Damn keyboard makers. You would think that such a diverse corporation would offer better electronics... Go figure.
