SPEEDO TUNER - Speedometer Calibrator Box

I was just wondering if anyone has tried this brand instead of the speedohealer.

http://www.hardracing.com/speedotuner.htm

They're asking price is $78.00.

Might have to give them a call to ensure KA-001 works on the gen 1.

It does work on Gen. 1. I know you didn't ask, it was more of a thinking out loud thing.
Found my answer at http://www.speedotuner.com/about.html

OMFG, calibration method does NOT seem safe. http://www.speedotuner.com/install.html
Seriously? They tell you to calibrate WHILE riding? Wow, I sense a lawsuit headed their way when somebody wrecks calibrating one of those!

CALIBRATION PROCEDURE

Once you have chosen your method of calibration, this is the procedure:

1. Temporarily mount the Speedo Tuner® module up on your fuel tank with the extra supplied Velcro. Make sure you can comfortably see the indicator light.
2. Start riding the motorcycle and when you are ready to start the procedure hold the set button down for approximately 6 seconds until the red light starts to blink rapidly, release the button.
3. As soon as possible, operate your motorcycle at a TRUE speed that you want to calibrate the unit at. (Although the Speedo Tuner® will calibrate at any speed, we strongly recommend 60 m.p.h. as the speed you use). Now push the set button again for 1-2 seconds until the red light starts blinking slower than before.
4. Now alter your bike’s speed so that the speedometer indicates the speed you have chosen (60 m.p.h.) to calibrate at and once more push the set button for 1-2 seconds. You should see the red light go solid and you may notice the speedometer needle jump to the corrected setting.
5. If you have made a mistake or gotten interrupted , simply hold the set button down for the 5-6 seconds until the red light starts blinking quickly then start again.
6. Remount the Speedo Tuner® under the seat once you have stopped and turned off the motorcycle.

I would stick with the SpeedoHealer, yes a little more expensive but besides the last speed recall it comes with a Test Function to help troubleshoot if necessary if your having guage or other problems, also the range for adjustment is higher than others so outrages setups like mine can do -769%(for Gauge swap from different year 10R) not the regular 99% limit but -999%, the Tech support or Website for Healtech is second to none plus the calculators will get you in the ball park none of the stick it on the tank and hit a button while your riding.
