I just got an 05 gixxer 750 and when i checked the speedo with our other car i found that the speedo on the bike is about 7 miles per hour over what the car says( e.g. bike says 67 when car says 60) im pretty sure its not the car because its a fairly new car. does anybody else have this problem or know how accurate the speedo on the bike should be?

any input appreciated.

Yeah by ~ 10 %
If it matters to you get a speedo healer to fix it
Or change the gearing which will make it so far off you won't give a shit anyhow

i know you can get one from bluegauges.com, but i have no clue how they work. but all bike's are overclocked from the factory.

Your speedometer and odometer are run off from the front sprocket, usually the odometer is on par but the speedometer is usually off 8% to 10 % from factory. A speedo healer will correct the error with some input when programming it. A yellow box will do the same but speedohealer is cheaper in price and is more accurate with a top speed recall button. It's worth every penny, got mine for $99.00.
If your decide to regear your bike then you can reprogram the speedo healer to the new gearing and be accurate with your speed.

Or, you could mount a bicycle computer on it for about $20, then you will have 100% accuracy.
the only draw back is that you still rack up the miles....

it's nice to have, if you change gearing - nice to know exactly how fast your going,
specially when being paced by a cop....

here is the one I had on my 01 gix... goes triple digits,
lock in your high speed, has a trip meter, stop watch, clock etc...

I used a bigger magnet that fit right inside the rotor and mounted the sensor to the
inside front part of the fender... fucken thing works great - %100 accurate....
I put-m on all my bikes now.
