Trip meters

Every bike I've had has three mileage readings.....your main odometer, trip 1 and trip 2. One for your fuel usage and one for an overall trip.

I have an "02 LT and I only find two mileage readings. Am I missing one somewhere?

You would need to buy an 05 or newer LT to get 2 trip meters.

Re: Trip meters

Thanks Zippy ! I was afraid of that. Somehow, the things I'm liking.....extra trip meter, motorized center stand and automatic luggage locks, are only on the newer ones. I'm always wanting for more! hehe

Re: Trip meters

My Garmin has 3 trip meters; still cheaper than an '05 or newer.

Ha, you beat me to it. I was going to suggest using the trip meter on a gps.

Just Go

Re: Trip meters

I have a garmin and I saw "trip meter" the other day. Can't remember how I got to it but I'll experiment and learn the procedure.

Great idea!
Thanks!

On my 2610, press "page" until you see the page with the compass; trip meters are in the upper right-hand corner.
