Trip computer

Is there a way to change the trip computer from MPG to L/KM? Etc.
My bike was from Florida and I'm in Canada (eh)- I read in the riders handbook that it can be changed but neither it or my service manual explains how.
Any help is appreciated - 2000 K1200LT

Re: Trip computer

no you can't switch between mpg/lpkm you can only change the accuracy of the read out distance to empty etc. the hand book is referring to that.
it may be possible to replace the board computer to a metric one no guarantee it would work though
