If you want an exact ratio, take the bike out with a GPS.

The percentage difference can be applied to correct your gauge at all speeds.

Re: Indicated speed less or more than actual

With the -1 front sprocket and the inherant inaccuracy of the speedo from the factory, you will be roughly 10% off.

So at an indicated 150mph, you will actually be doing around 135mph or so.

Get a $60 Speedohealer and you are good to go.
