2007 UM V2S-250R Speedometer off
« on: August 27, 2017, 12:45:36 AM »

Hey there, my gt250r is reading speeds about 3-5 mph off from the actual speed. (Did some tests with a speed app by comparing it with my dash's reading)

Wondering if I should fix this with a speedohealer or with a new speed sensor. This bike has only about 2000 miles on it so I'm not sure.

Hey mate, it's supposed to be off. They are set higher by the manufacturer for safety reasons.

I'm not sure how it's any safer but both cars and bikes are all set so that you're going slower than it's reading.

Yup. It's a euro standards requirement that has become sort of global.

its to prevent you accidentally speeding if you fit larger profile tyres. then you cant sue the vehicle manufactures for having the speedo read wrong.

My hyo reads 9% fast. ive gotten used to doing the maths in my head, but i do intend to replace the whole unit for more accurate one. You could always fit a aftermarket GPS speedo, not so great at slow walking pace speeds, or in a highrise city, and takes a second to adjust to current speed changes, but would be great for open road cruising.

Stock and a speedohealer sounds like a good plan to me.

I'm not sure if my sense of speed had a shift or something recently then because it didn't always seem to be inaccurate til just recently.
If that's the case then, I'll probably install an aftermarket cluster that can be read accurately or something. If anyone already has one and can recommend one, that'd be great. Thanks c:
