speedohealer/top speed

hi , just a question here , I installed the 16t sprocket and calibrated the speedohealer for the gearing change plus the site recomended 5.8% factory speedo error. Then I went out and did a top speed run , and when I returned I hit the top speed recall button , and it read 180 mph. I don't even know if this was the top speed , because I shut it down quick , I chickened-out basically. Now I thought the bike wasn't supposed to reach this speed , with this gearing. ??. The bike is a 2005 , is bone stock , with the exception of the sprocket and a 180/55 rear tire. The road was flat and there was no tailwind that I was aware of. Could the 5.8% factory speedo error be the wrong value ?. thanks for any reply's.

Did you enter a 5.8%, or a -5.8% (negative) error?
If you went the wrong way, your speedo is even worse than when you started.
Get a GPS or have a car pace you at around 60mph and see what you come up with.

If I remember right, nearly 13% correction for a 16/39 combo

Somebody here recently did a SH calibration along with a GPS for 16/39 and found -12.2% to be right on @ 100mph.

You said: "calibrated the speedohealer for the gearing change plus the site recomended 5.8% factory speedo error"
So, what is the total you put in, 5.8% plus what?

That comes to +13.9% total speedo error , and -12.2% SH calibration value.

You never got to 180mph..... sorry.
Your speed-o is reading very optimistic.
With my 16t sprocket I went to -12.2% on the healer and I'm perfect.
Your speed-o could have been off more than standard from the factory.
Borrow a GPS and compare your speed-o to the GPS at around 60mph and work up the calibration value from that.
