Hi all,

Does anyone know if it's possible to convert the tachometer on the GL1800 from MPH to KMH? Is it a simple user setting, or a whole tachometer replacement?

Also, headlamp. can it be adjusted to drive on the opposite side of the road, or again is that a whole new replacement?

Thanks for any advice !

i heard you could buy an non-us verision speedometer, about the headlamp, it has left right adjustment but as far as i know motorcycle headlamps aim to the center of the road.

Yes the 1800 aims at the center of the road ,so no need to change it ,just a little adjustment .You already have Kilometers on the clock ,on the inside circle ,so why change? But if you do need to change it is a new clock as far as I am aware and you will have a job getting one as most wings are in Miles ,You could always look p on the net for breakers yards in Canada or France,Germany .But usually the first thing that gets sold are the clocks .

I'm not familliar with the 1800's, but doing-up a template/overlay for the face may, or may not, be within the capabilities of many. Remove and disassemble down to the face and take a digital photograph. Manipulate as desired....

Example of a 1000:

The ability to change all the instrumentation to and from metric with a press of a button was on of the nicer things on the '85LTD and the '85SEI. It's a pity they didn't keep that function.
