does anyone kknow how to
convert a r1 speedo from miles to
klms ?
It should tell you in your manual, on my 01 R1 i think it was by holding the 2 buttons down till it changed, not sure about the 02/03.

I just checked my manual, you just hold the 2 buttons for at least 2 seconds and it should change. Although it said UK only, so im not sure weither or not they actually have different clocks. Hope it helps.

I have an '01 Canadian (metric) R1 in TX. The only way to do mine was using a "Yellow Box". It still displays kph as a unit, but the #'s displayed are in mph. Same for the odometer.

thanks fellas
the reason I'm asking is that I need a speedo and they are
cheaper to buy second hand in the U.S.....but they read in miles.

Go to borg's link-o-rama and look in the R1 service section. It shows how you can solder jumpers on the circuit board to get what you need.
