Need some help!!!

I was cruising my NEW Ninja 636 the other day on the highway with my girl in tow in our truck and I noticed the speedometer is way off. Like 10 miles an hour or so at highway speed. I approached the head mechanic at the shop I bought my bike at who called someone at Kawasaki and they told him that at 60mph the bike is ALLOWED to be off by 6%!!!!!!!!!!!!! You've got to be freaking kidding me! Anyone else ever heard of this BS?!?!?! Help me out guys cause I'm NOT about to get a ticket for thinking I'm doing the speed limit when the factory screwed up calibrating my bike.

All speedo's on bikes are off. Goto http://www.speedohealer.com/ and punch in your specs to figure out how much your off. Installation is easy with plug in harness.
