Post Speedo reads KMPH not MPH...RTFM!

Hello.
Just got back home from collecting my Tenere.
I've had a read of the owners manual to go about changing the speedometer to read in MPH, so no RTFMs please.

It say's to turn the ignition to 'ON', then press the 'SELECT' but for two seconds. But, after doing this, not change is visible and the clock still reads in KMs.
Any ideas where I'm going wrong?

Timpo.

ok before you do that make sure the speedo is displaying the ODO reading and not the TRIP, that normally does it on the XTX/XTR, unless they've used a different software on the diag.

ODO reading and trip are displayed on the same screen.

I've just had my Sarah RTFM to me and I have done exactly as described with no joy???

Do you have any way of scanning the User Manual that was given to you with the bike for me to have a look at? You have to appreicate I have yet to have my hands on one of these bikes and I hate to think that they sold you an European import bike, because all UK bikes should display both KHM and Miles. Have a word with your dealer.

We've had this problem before with other users that bought a bike from Holland or France and found that they can only use the KHM on their diag.

Sorry, I don't have a scanner.

I have noticed that after the key is put into 'ON' position and the system check goes through the motions, there is 'miles' displayed above the 'kms' on the LCD display.

I'll give my dealer a call in the morning and let you know how I get on....

Hi Timpo

Had exactly the same problem with my XTZ when I picked it up, Yamaha didn't know how to get around it, my dealer fixed it by turning the key to the off position, holding down both buttons whilst turning the ignition back on, that enabled him to choose the MPH setting, so good luck with that, hope your enjoying your XTZ as much as I am mine.

Gotan, your the man...... It worked a treat.

So, 'The Manual' is not correct, that means RTFM is a load of sh!t.......

Capt Moto, is this worth a sticky as other Zed-heads may need to know this info......

Timpo.

Smile Thanks guys

its nice to be of service to someone.
by the way, have managed to sort out my dip stick oil leak by putting two O rings on it and the leak has stopped, but also got a call from the dealers today saying that they have a recall on the XTZ because of the leak and have a new part (dip stick) ready to put on it. So far Ive done about 200 miles on it and loved every minute of it, best fun I have had in years.

Tricky speedo

Picked the xt660z yesterday only to find that it would work on kmph. Even the dealer couldn't sort it. Well after trawling the posts I found the advice on this thread and it worked a treat.

Cheers, I'll pass it back to the dealer so that they can sort it for anyone else who might suffer with same issue.
