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).

  1. 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.

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

  3. 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/

  4. I think they all do ,mine does the same. I have to run 110 to keep up when my buddies are doing 100

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

  6. Speedo tuner. Easy to install and accurate. 80.00 on line at speedotuner.com

  7. 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.

  8. 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.
