Lies, lies and more lies from speedo on '98 blade

Greetings everyone,

Just purchased '98 blade, which, by the way, I find abosolutely marvelous, and found out that speedo is fundamentally incorrect. As in wrong.

According to GPS, at real 50kph it shows around 80kph indicated, at real 160 it shows 200 and so forth. It sure keeps me on the safe side of speedcams, but keeping in mind all those "speedo conversions tables" to work out real speed is annoying as hell.

I also don't think that my blade has different sprockets from stock, however this probably would be most likely cause.

Anyway, anyone have any ideas (three "any" in this sentence!)?



MMmm, and while I'm here - anyone can advise at what speeds first, second and third gears ends on 919 blade with everything stock and, well, any tires?
Thanks.

Sprocket change on my 954, Speedohealer fixed it right up. In the group I ride with, I'm the only one with a now accurate speedometer.

That's a hell of a speedo error.
It's got to be non-standard gearing.
My 929 is -1/+6 I think at the moment and the speedo isn't as far out as yours is.
