990 Odo Setup Change from MPH to KMPH

Hi I have just bought a 2011 990 Adv. R

It's a British registered bike so the speedometer / Odometer is set for Mph.

I am going to be Riding it 100% in Europe as thats where I'm based.

Is there any simple procedure to change the speed readout from Miles per Hour to kilometres per hour.

The Bike / Manual hasn't arrived yet so apologies if this procedure is clearly stated in the manual.

Many thanks

I think you turn on the key while holding down both the mode, and set buttons. Hold them down for a few seconds until the readout changes.

Or, not.

Edit: Maybe you need only button.

From the Owners Manual:
Setting options in the display
You can have the speed and distance shown in kilometers or miles in the display. The display
can be adapted to the respective country on long-distance trips.
To switch from kilometers to miles, switch on the ignition and press the MODE [1] button
for approx. 10 seconds. The km/h display will switch to mph. The speed and the stored distances
will be converted and displayed in miles.
To return to kilometers, proceed as described above.

I miss round headlights.
