Question

Does anyone know an easy fix for the speedometer error? My 2006 Vulcan has about a 10% speedometer error (reads about 10% faster than i am actually driving).

    I heard that Euro gears will bring it close to normal.\nAnother option is to install a Speedo Healer but that will affect millage.\nIf you are good at math subtract 10%\n\nAll my Kawasakis have the same induced error. Which is a problem because millage is correct but speed isn’t. Probably someone with knowledge of electronics could take apart and speedometer and see how they are inducing the error.

    Don’t need a speedo. Until you get pulled over. Then you know how much the ticket could be!!

    All bikes are like that. I refer to my GPS for speed, or you can install SpeedoHealer to correct https://www.healtech-electronics.com/products/sh/

    Mines the same, my brother complains I don’t go fast enough. But the speedo is fast enough for me.

    My ’09 didn’t start doing that until I had an emergency tire put on in the middle of a road trip. I was in Podunk, Nowhere, and the only tire that would fit my rim was a smaller circumference than Kawi standard. Now I have to go 75 to keep up with 60 mph traffic. Maybe look at a bigger tire.

    I never worry about it. I just figure I’m going about 7MPH slower than my speedo says. Simple 1st grade math. Been riding my V2K for 3 years and 25,000 miles that way and haven’t had a ticket yet. That’s running anywhere from slow city to freeway where the speed limit is 75 MPH. Been through radar traps many times and been fine. Not really a big deal. I’ve owned 23 motorcycles in my 47 years of riding and can honestly say I don’t remember even one where the speedo was accurate. All were off one way or the other.
