speedo error

Do sport bikes tend to have a large error on the speedometer? It seems like my bike reads about 3 to 5 miles an hour faster then actual at 80 mph or so judging by the speedos of cars next to me (when I see a caddy with a digital...).

Thats actually pretty good. Normally once speeds start to get up there speedo error is usually around 10%. A general rule of thumb is expect 5 to 10% speedo error.

Go to www.speedohealer.com and punch in what you got to find out what it's off.

I have a speedo healer, it works great. That's because of my sprockets though..
