It depends on your rear tire, but based on the stock setup reading 6% high:

16/39 13%
17/39 6%
16/41 18%
17/41 11%
18/41 5%
18/44 13%

I think 18% is fairly high for the 16/41 which I have. I have not completly tested at higher speeds but I do have a radar gun and at -11.1% at 50mph it was only 1mph off. If the speedhealer can't correct after going another 100mph or so and be within at least 5mph after the 50mph tests than I think it is no better than the stock sensor for top speed results.

Sorry, let me correct myself. I have a 16/40 at -11.1%, but I still think your numbers will come up higher than mine with a radar gun. I think part of the problem is there is no definite error for the stock Speedo which is assumed to be 5% or higher, but obviously there must be variances among the stock gauges.

Slight off shoot, has anyone looked at the gearing calculators that have been posted here?
Im wondering if one could go by what the speed is given in those calculations, ie in 3rd gear at 3000rpm your speed should be 32mph, 4000rpm 42.7mph, seeing that wind at these speeds is not much of a factor would it seem reasonable to go by these speeds for correcting the speedohealer?:dontknow:

Ive previously set mine at 12.7%, but now im wondering, seems to be a difference of 9.8% between what mine and the gearing calculator reads, mine reads lower.

if you going for exact mph then going -1 in front the correction would be about 10.8%, if you want to leave the error speedo buffer that comes from the factory then it is about 6%

If you want to be more accurate, use a GPS to establish a baseline reading. Then adjust the tire correction factor in the gearing calculator so the speed in the calculator matches what your GPS reads. Bear in mind that tachometers are not 100% accurate either. Also, your speed will decrease as your rear tire wears.

Cheers, dont have a gps thingy, but have measured tire circumference and entered that in the gearing calculator when comparing the speeds at different revs.

18% is high.......and yes your thinking is right about 14-15%, should work well.
