Hey everyone,
I replaced the factory front sprocket on my 1999 GSXR 750 with an aftermarket on having one tooth less. I like the gearing better but at 60 mph, I'm reading about 55 mph. In addition to the speedometer to being off, I am racking up more miles on the odometer than I am really riding. How do you fix this? I'm sure it's possible, right????? THanks all!!

Get a Sigma bicycle computer

BT800 or better if I remember right.

They run about 40 bones at any bicycle shop. Hunter has some picts of the install on his site http://www.gixxerinsanity.com
They are better than a stock speedo anyway, stuff like top speed, average speed ect. come stock in it.

That would be my suggestion, it will not mess it up too much

Your speedo should read much faster than you are actually going. Another words, if you are going 60 mph, it should read about 80 mph. You are right, your odo is racking up more miles than you are actually going. You could always get it recalibrated too. Call around to see who can do it. I did the opposite, I went from 1 tooth down in front, back to the factory setting. Now my speedo reads far less than I am actually going, the benefit is, the milage is way down. The guy that I bought the bike from, put the 1 tooth less in front on and had it calibrated for it. Hope this helps.

One down in the front does NOT make the speedo 20 mph off!!


You were right when you said about 5 mph.
I have seen the posts on the yellow box and I'm thinking of getting one.

Yeah, it's about 5 mph off around 60 mph. So, I went out and got a bike computer, not a Sigma, but a decent one none the less, it's even wireless to simplify the installation, but I'm still working through getting the magnet and sensor mounted and working together they way I think they should be. Anyway, what's up with the yellow box? I appreciate the feedback.
