Default change mph to kmh

Hi, New guy just bought a used 2018 RTV x1100C and it's not the biggest deal but I am wondering if it's possible to change the odometer and speedo to Metric. I can see that it's on the LCD screen so it should be possible just not sure how to do it. I checked the owners manual and I didn't see any information on it.

Welcome!

It seems like there ought to be a way.

In the meantime - a rule that helped me when I lived a couple of years in South America:
Think of distance English/Metric as always a 5:8 ratio. 50mph = 80kph, 80 km to the next town is 50 miles, etc.

Welcome Butcher. I'm not sure how to do anything like that, but maybe someone will chime in . Are then any buttons to the side near the speedometer? I like California's idea in the meantime.

Under the hood there is a single wire that you need to plug or unplug. I just forget if it is the left or right side.

Thanks for the info! I looked under the hood and sure enough there are two wires on the passenger side that are taped up. I took the tape off and put the connectors together and now I have the metric system. I've attached a couple pictures for anyone else that might search for this. Thanks again

No they dont go to zero, the odometer and speedo just convert from kmh to mph(or vice versa) just like a car does. My odometer went from 151miles to 241kms on the odometer. Hour meter stays the same.

Multiply whatever speed X .625

100 Kph X .625 =62.5 MPH

I wonder how you change those engine hours to GMT...Greenwich Mean Time

I agree this is useful info that needs to be near the top but not its own sticky.
If you've been here awhile, you'll recall we had so many sticky threads that when you came to this forum section, the entire first page of posts were all sticky so paging forward was always required to see anything new. We consolidated most of the sticky threads into this one.
Index to some popular / useful RTV threads
http://www.nettractortalk.com/forums...ad.php?t=15485


I've added this thread to the index. If y'all agree that putting it there is adequate, I'll remove the explicit sticky on this thread.

Thanks Brian. I remembered that little detail after I did the sticky and was off digging a hole (grave for my wifes's kitty. 16 yrs old. ) Please unstick and add to the main sticky thread.
