Silver/blue 2002?

Hey all,
Got about 400 klicks on the new Falcon. I was wondering if anyone in the states has a 2002 Silver/Blue. If so is it a Canadian model or European?
I'll be shipping mine from here(JAPAN) in a few months and may need some advice on changing from Kilo's to MPH. Any help would be awesome.

Also some good news. I picked the bike up on Thursday(01 Aug), and find out I was selected to be a Chief Petty Officer in the worlds most powerful Navy. I'll be busy for about 6 weeks.

Congrats on the pro-mo!

I can't help you a whole lot with the metric/sase conversion, except to say that I've read that sometimes people get it wrong, and their mileage on the odometer is then wrong, so be aware.

A little off-topic but my wife's been searching for a new vehicle, and I read some stuff about how people can take a laptop computer and tap into a digital odometer on a vehicle and roll the mileage back digitally.

No silver/blues here. Only in Europe, Australia and a few other countries.

Your best bet would be to just change the instrument cluster, probably find a used one for about $200. Or for $115 you can get a yellow box and change the face plates, although your OD, trip OD and mileage calculator will still be in KM.

Narcissus is right. European model is: silver/silver, black/blue and silver/blue. I have silver/blue model 2002. State color is silver/silver and black/blue.

Can face plates be purchased/installed easily? If I change the gear ratio, won't a need a yellow box anyway? I might as well change the face plate at the same time...

You can purchase them and install them easily. Just remove the front cowling, detach the speedo and remove the cover.

You can also make these yourself (high res image files for printing available), but it won't be all nice at night with the backlight. Make sure if you buy them that they are the high quality ones. I don't remember which are the good ones, maybe someone here does?
