Which way does a sprocket change affect the speedometer?

My '97 CBR 600 was taken -1 in the front by the previous owner, and he said it wouldn't need a speedohealer. I disagree, just because of the inaccuracy of stock speedos anyway. My question is, where would the error show up? It seems to me based on the flow of traffic that the speedo shows that I'm going 8-10mph faster than I really am. Is this an understandable error given the -1 sprocket up front?

Re: Which way does a sprocket change affect the speedometer?

Yep that's about right. -1 in the front is a 6.25% change. Your speedo will say that you are going 6.25% faster than you are actually going. However most bikes are already off by a few % anyway so you might be as much as 10% off total, could even be worse than that.

Edit: if it was me, I would get the speedo healer.

If it has wheels, I've crashed it, and some things that don't razor scooter, skate board, roller skates, roller blades, skis, snowmobile, card board box on stairs, giant inner tube, nissan sentra, dirtbike, lawn tractor (wheelied it over), grandmas bread tray on stairs, kayak, canoe, rubber raft, bicycle, wake board, kneeboard, waterskis, tobaggan (plowed a pine tree), horses, ATV's

10% off easily.. Speedo healer is a must when doing any sprocket change +or -... Its always important to know your speed... At least for me it is...
