How to "zero" speedo on '03 REV

just as the title says, my speedo starts at 40 km/h while I'm standing still, and goes up smoothly. So I don't think it's the common relay problem. All the other guages work fine and all the lights and indicators work fine. Just wondering if anyone could share the zeroing procedure.
Thanks a bunch.

edit: oh yeah it's a 2003 rev 600 HO with electric start and reverse

i searched it for ya

If you press and hold your trip button on startup, it will display "SCALE" Release the button and you will see a set of brackets [] spinning in a clockwise fashion. press and hold your button again, and the pointer will slowly tick up. release the button and the brackets will start rotating counterclockwise. Press and hold again and your speedo pointer will drop slowly. The object is to set your pointer on zero. Release again, and repeat for your tach...

awesome, thanks a lot, I'll give that a shot. Do you know roughly what the idle speed should be?

damn it will be nice to not look down and see my speedo pegged at 240+ km/h, can't wait to try it out!

gave it a shot today, didn't go to "SCALE" I sat there holding it for EVAR lol. It flips through trip, odo, and hours just fine. Like do I have to be holding it before I fire it up or...?

yes, you have to be pushing it when the sled starts, best with another person.

ahh that would explain why haha, my thumb was starting to hurt after a while of holding it. It shouldn't be a problem with the electric start by myself. What's the low idle on a 600ho, anyone? Just so I can zero that as well.

Thanks for the help btw
