I've read the procedure to calibrate the BC fuel consumption in the HOW.
Question is - will this work for a Euro spec bike that reads in Litres/100Km?

My BC reads exactly 0.3 litres/100Km over actual consumption.

I don't know the answer for sure, but why wouldn't it? The calibration method doesn't read MPG or MPH ... it is just a setting within a range of numbers. What's the worst that could happen? Your BC won't go into calibration mode...no harm done. You alter the setting on your BC and it isn't right... give it another shot! You make the changes and it works...yahoo!

Don't get your hopes up that the BC will ALWAYS be accurate, even if set correctly. I've reset mine a couple of times and the mileage varies more due to altitude changes than the BC seems to cope with. It is now closer to real life, but it is still no better than an edumacated guesstimate. It does work well as an entertainment device while covering West Texas though, regardless of the setting.

Maths was never my best subject :eek:

Should the formula not be different for Litres/100km instead of MPG.

The display seems very accurately reading 0.3 litres/100 over actual consumption - measured over many tanks.
