rancher kph to mph

I have a 2001 rancher with a display that reads in metric. Anyone know if there is a way to switch it to american mph. I've tried every combination of holding buttons key on off etc. It is hard to read the conversion chart while running the mud holes.

Don't think they are switchable. I have the other problem, I'd rather be in metric but I'm used to converting between both systems.

NYMud: I know that a lot of the Honda ATV's have different electrical systems, and schematics; depending on where the machine will be used. There's a good chance (but I can't say for sure) that even if you got a display that displays miles instead of kilometers, it still probably wouldn't work correctly since the ECU (computer) in the machine is responsible for getting pulses from the transmission and converting those pulses into data that can be delivered to the display. You might try contacting American Honda's Motorcycle Division in California and asking them. (I wouldn't go out and buy one (miles display) unless you speak to someone who has actually done it, or knows for sure that it can be done. American Honda is generally very responsive to such inquiries. American Honda's phone number is:

A simple meter switch to a mph one should fix that problem as I don't believe Honda made the meters to function in both,or either mode back then...You either got a kph,or an mph meter depending upon which country you bought/it was originally sold in...The ecm should work with either one btw as Honda only lists one ecm number for the fm model...I have read on a different forum about when some batteries get weak,or die all the way the owners replace the battery,and the meters read in kph afterwards...

NYMud: I'm glad you called Honda. Because of the cost involved, it's something you want to get right the first time. There is one positive note though.... At least you don't have to change or do anything with the ECU (Computer) on your machine. That's even more expensive than the display.

Also, you might send a Personal Message to Ballast. He's up in kilometer country (Canada) and he might know of someone there who has a miles display they would be willing to trade. It's worth a try, and Ballast is a good guy!

Resurrecting an old thread, instead of starting a new one.... Are honda atv's in Canada reading in km/h? I ask because my trx450s dash LCD is not working, and looking into options for getting one.
Thanks
