Speedo Calibration
« on: August 10, 2010, 04:27:02 AM »

Okay, so have done the searches and have not come across this answer yet...

I am on a '06 650 Naked and my speedo is WAY off.... any ideas of how to fix this ? Checked with GPS.

Speeds are in KM/H

Speedo   GPS
110        100
120        110
130        150
160        165

its brutal!

Is there a fix for this ?

Got my answer of lubrication.

http://www.ehow.com/how_5751659_lubricate-speedometer-cable.html

The bike is an '06 sat until end of '09 (64km)

I have put 11,000km on it from December till now. So it might be the cable ? really ?

Yeaps, if there is too much resistance in the cable movement, it just wont turn smoothly and given enough time, it will snap :P.

I just find myself a plastic bag, wrap it around the cable end and secure it with rubber bands, then fill the plastic bag with wd 40, then some oil. Thats about it. What mine did was, it was stuck at 160, then it jumped to 180 then 200, and anything above 200, the speedo just bounced around. When it first happened, i thought there was a HUGE flatspot as i found my bike not going pass 160 then after holding the throttle it jumped to 180 then 200 was ok. When it started bouncing around, i lube the cable, and yeah, the flatspot was gone :P well there isn't any actually, might be there is, but it's just not as obvious as i thought it was initially, just the speedo was stuck. After the lube, i can see the speedo climbing all the way to 220 (chasing a ZX6 which is kinda like wishful thinking haha when he took off at 250.. was a friend of mine) somewhat i think the digital speedo has more error as my friend on a 650R clocked 230 ish which i doubt as my analogue clock was only reading 220ish.

No there's not a fix for this the speedo is pretty inaccurate, but I think by law (In AU that is) they are allowed to be upto 10% over...

I believe thats correct.....A mate of mine has a police bike with all the radars and everything on it and we where going for a ride and he had the radar on which through GPS shows the bike speed and it at most speeds around 10% out to his bike speedo, so at 100kms on our speedo we where doing around 90kms was intresting to find out as i didnt know and wondered why alot of cars would catch up to me when i was just cruzing along on the way to work hehe
