CBR1000RR Tech Bulletin
I was in the local dealer today and they showed me a tech bulletin. About the Speedo problem that many others have reported. If your speedo gets off then there is no repair for it at this time and to make it worse it can take place at any time. They are reportedly 23% off when they do malfunction. However on a positive note this problem does not effect the odometer according to honda. To tell if yours is correct here are the numbers you should be reading at 4,000 rpm (If you read these numbers it is correct)
1st gear 29mph, 2nd gear 38mph, 3rd gear 46mph, 4th gear 53mph, 5th gear 59mph, 6th gear 64mph.
Once again if you read these numbers the speedo is correct however they said this issue can begin at any time so just keep an eye on it so you will know.
