    Speedo Calibrator

    Has anyone found a way to calibrate their NC's speedo? I do not always have my Garmin with me when i ride, and continually having to add 20% to my display gets really annoying after a while. I have been looking at Speedo calibrators and found a few that look like they would work, have any of you guys found or use something similar/better?

    I am looking at purchasing one of these to correct the problem... :{)

    I just bought one of those to go with the 17 tooth front sprocket I am planning on installing within the next 2 months. I will let you know how it goes here if you can hang on.

    I don’t know if it’s that exact brand, but I have one that looks just like that. It does what it’s supposed to do. Once you calibrate it, the speed reads correctly, and you don’t even know it’s there.

    I ran the wire up into the battery box, and zip tied the unit above the battery, out of the weather.

    Perhaps you could tell me where to find the VSS connector?

    I too added the 17T sprocket first and really liked the results. I have since added a 39T rear from a DCT bike as well as a 140/80-17" rear tire newly mounted. According to my Garmin Montana, the speedo is reading right at 20% slow from 25mph-80mph.

    God to know men, thanks. I'll pull the trigger on one of those then and get'r installed. :{)

    I believe the one on mine is a Speedohealer V4 and seems to work well.

    I’m sure the need for an accurate speedometer outweighs an accurate odometer but it’s worth mentioning an electronic calibrator will change the odometer reading by the same correction factor and the manual transmission NC’s do not have the same error between the speedometer and odometer.

    It varies bike to bike, as does calibration. Cars also generally have different odo than speedo accuracy.
