GL1800 miles to Kilometer headace

I know this topic was on discussion many many times before. What I cannot understand, why would Honda restrict the owners from changing the tripmeter's unit. Looking in the spareparts list for the tripmeter, both models being the Canada and USA model have the same part. It does not make sense in having two types of trip displays if it is run by software. I know on my Yamaha YZF R1, there was a certain combination when turning the key that would allow you to change the Speedo from miles to kilometers, without any trouble. I am sure there must be a secret list of key presses that would allow you to change it. Maybe someone from Honda USA can join in the fun and let us frustrated owners know the secret.

If there is anyone that have done this, please let us know.
