Hi all,

I have a late 2012 model of Rcz, for some reason my speedometer (I think that's what it's called) give me the incorrect speed while driving...for example I will be doing 30mph and it's telling me I'm doing 80mph!

Is there a way to reset this? Or is this a job for a mechanic????

I have attached a photo of a similar speedometer.

Would appreciate any help as I am trying to save some money!

Thank you!

Hi, could it be that your digital speedo is set to read kmh where your analog speedo is a mph unit? You probably just need to go into your settings on the digital screen and alter the setting to mph easy! :thumbup:

The Kph instead of mph sounds likely.


Whereas mine often says I'm doing over 100 mph :eusa-whistle: :law-policered:

Conversion from mph to kph the kph gives a higher speed than mph
30 mph equals 48 kph
40 mph equals 64 kph
50 mph equals 80 kph
60 mph equals 96 kph
62.5 mph equals 100 kph

If you have the RT6 system press setup, choose select units, and select the units required.
