Speedohealer settings...

It seems the speedo for the ZX14 is off... waaaaay off.

I'd like to get an accurate reading from mine, does anyone else out there use a Speedohealer?
And if so, what settings do you use? Nearest I can figure out , it's off by 8%.

Thanks guys.

Use the search function http://www.bikeland.org/board/search.php

Lots of us have SpeedoHealers and this has been discussed at length. My stock speedo was off by 7% (verified by GPS). Your bike most likely has an error of 5% - 10% if gearing is stock.

Set it at -90% and go 200 MPH...that's what we did!

One word of caution.

While the SPEEDO is off a bit the ODO is quiet accurate stock. I have ridden 2 nonstop trips (stopped to gas, eat and piss....) over 1000 miles each and the ODO was damn near perfect. If you use a healer you will want to retain the original speedo error if you want the bike to count miles correctly. If you don't care then you can get a GPS and set the healer to be pretty close to real speed, but it will cost you with an incorrect ODO. This is more evidence of the fact that the ECU uses math to calculate the commands sent to the dash for the speedo, ODO and gear pos indicator <-------which will also suffer incorrect function if the % is great enough from stock.

......one small detail is that also as you turn the bike the numbers stray due to an effective reduction in wheel/tire size.....

Cool, thanks guys. Will use search function from now on, didn't realize it was on the main
forums page.

Looking forward to finding that RPM limiter in 6th.....

Bummer is, I have to go to Nevada to test top speeds, don't know of ANYWHERE in
California that I can safely get up there. Ah, the problems that come with big engines...

On the European model with an MPH / KPH scaled speedo you can do a "convert kph to mph" on the Speedo Healer and the 300kph dial becaomes a 300mph dial, also no worries about hitting the limiter. It worked fine for me.
