I have read in several post that the speedometer is off on the Burgman between 6-10%.... why? and is there a way to fix it so it is accurate, or do you always go by speed minus 5???
My 2009 650 Exec was off by 9.5% which I fixed with a Speedohealer. My 2007 Honda VTX 1300 was off by 9% which I fixed with a speedohealer, my 2005 Honda VT 750A was off by 9%. My GL1800 Gold Wing was off, My GL1500 Gold Wing was off. It is a common thing with motorcycles.wmcqueen said:I have read in several post that the speedometer is off on the Burgman between 6-10%.... why? and is there a way to fix it so it is accurate, or do you always go by speed minus 5???
MIne is off by that much, I think. If I remember, the books says when I get the fuel pump icon and the last bar flashing at the same time, I have 1.0 liters left. I'll drive 25 miles with both flashing and stop to refuel and only take 3.4 - 3.5 gallons. That means I still have about 2 liters in the tank and have only driven about 136 miles total on that tank full. I had this same problem on a boat. I took out the sending unit out of the tank and lengthened the float rod a bit to correct the boat's.bosshoss1 said:Personally - I don't really care what speed the speedo is indicating (For whatever reason!!) If I am keeping up with all the traffic, I nver look at the speedo - so it can be off by 20%.!! NOT A PROBLEM FOR ME AT ALL!! What I do care about is - THAT THE FUEL GUAGE IS NOT OFF BY 10-20%..........!!!!! :cheers: :thumbup: :thumbup: :lol:
No, they obtain their measurements via different sources. what has been seen is that if something is done to twiddle with the speedo error (healer, car tire, etc) the odometer then becomes inaccurate. Tit for tat.jademerch said:OK, so I am assuming that if the speedo is off by 10 percent that that means the ODO will show aprox 10 percent more miles than actual also?
