Shout out to gen 3 owners with speedohealer v4

Well as it seems , ive stumbled onto a werid little problem with my speedohealer v4 on my gen 3..
Today i noticed that everytime i hit my top speed recall button it adds more km's(miles to you's) to the trip meter
Just wanted any other people out there with the same setup to test theirs to see if it does it too, and get back to me?
Cheers

The odometer works by calculating distance based on the speed over a certain amount of time. There isn't a separate sensor for the mileage. When you press the top speed recall, the cluster thinks you're moving at that displayed speed for the 2 seconds and starts calculating distance traveled at that speed. It's completely normal as the 2 functions are related. It's insignificant though, especially because the total mileage on the bike will be lower by the same factor that's programmed into the speedohealer.

It's amazing how many people install the speedohealer and then complain about gas mileage going down because they're using the odometer for reference.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

I didnt know this. Does the speedohealer not correct % off the speedohealer? Thus the mileage should be correct on the trip odo?

If you have a -10% correction factor in the speedohealer, then essentially the odometer is off the same percentage, as it thinks the speed is lower and thus makes the mileage lower. Trip meters, odometer, etc. it makes no difference as they all come from the same calculation. The only input to the cluster is speed. Distance is calculated based on this single speed input. Once you program the speedohealer to show the proper speed, everything else is affected accordingly.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.
