12oclocklabs speed healer percentage ?

I had a quick question just to see out of interest. What percentage did you guys end up using with -1 +2 set up on a 180/55/17 I used 15.4 haven't tested it yet won't be able to till Tuesday curious if ny of you used a similar number or what you are using and how accurate it is?

If you have not already checked this.

Of course the unknown is the factory inaccuracies. The best guesses I've seen are that the speedos read 10-15% high from the factory.

Re: 12oclocklabs speed healer percentage ?

i use -18.2% on my 750 with a -1/+2 setup that takes my final drive to 2.938. your 600 went from a 2.688 to a 3.000. none of those numbers really mean shit for YOUR speedo. either borrow a gps and ride at 60 mph for a minute, while monitoring the indicated speed on the gps, or drive a measured distance and time it to find your feet/second and convert it. throwing out a thread like this on the internet is not going to accurately get your correction.

We have a link to a calculator you can use to figure the estimated fix you will need. However, using a gps is the best method to figure the error.

Yea I guess I need to go get a GPS. I was just curious if all these bikes were the same but I am guessing not I think my current percentage should get me close but I will find out next week. Thanks guys

Just use the calculator we have and it will get you very close. As close as your bike is stock. It's off a bit even then, but it's not enough to where I would worry about it.

There are a bunch of free speedometer apps for smartphones, etc. I just duct taped my phone to the gas tank and went riding. Sure enough 65 mph on the speedo was 60 on the phone/gps. Close enough to 10% for me.

The other guys are right you that you have to check your own bike to get a good correction. Add different tire brands and models to the gearing variables.
