SpeedoHealer Calibrator v3.0

The SpeedoHealer is an electronic device which will enable your bike's speedo and odometer to show realistic information.
In addition, the Speedo Healer can convert miles to kilometers and vice versa in real time.
In regard to the technical specifications and included functions, the SpeedoHealer is the best calibrator currently available.

Top Speed Memory recalls your recent real top speed to your factory speedometer display at the press of a button and will still work after the ignition is cycled off and back on later.

This release also includes:
- smaller, lighter, neater design
- improved accuracy and noise tolerance for extreme applications

Typical uses-
Eliminating "factory inaccuracy", which may be as much as 10%
- Account for changes in tire size/profiles
- Make gear ratio changes, such as sprocket conversions on motorcycles
- By-pass (alter around) the in-built factory speed limiter (not for Suzukis with Gear Position Sensor)
- Mile or kilometer conversion on import vehicles
- Adjust for new speedo face-plate with different scale
- Requirement for absolute accurate odometer or speedometer
- Requirement to characterize the display unit of the vehicle (stability, error % and linearity)

What do you gain with SpeedoHealer?
- Accurate speedometer and/or odometer no matter what you change on your vehicle
- Your odometer won't show more miles/kms than you ride (RESALE VALUE!)
- Top Speed Memory (Ever wondered HOW FAST you were going?)
- Safety: your speedometer will always clearly indicate your actual speed, without lag
- Optimal performance (certain vehicles require accurate speed signal to deliver the most performance)

Product highlights
- Widest calibration range along with the finest increments (0.1%)
- The best accuracy (0.025%)
- Have the most features
- Plug-n-Go Kits are available for the major Japanese bikes
- Quick and easy setup through the on-line calculator
- 100% weather proof design, it is built to last
- The lightest re-calibrator with the most compact dimensions
- Each unit is extensively tested prior to shipping. Guaranteed to work.
The latest documentation including installation photos can be downloaded from speedohealer.com

NOTE: The VTX1300/1800, CBR1000RR, and the 2005-up CBR600RR take the Honda II harness. All other Honda models take the Honda kit. The VN2000 model (all years) take the Kawasaki-2 kit. The 2005-up ZX6R/RR and 206-up ZX10R take the "universal" splicing kit. All other Kawasaki models take the Kawasaki-1 kit. A full application list is available HERE.

Each unit is extensively tested, and comes with a 30-day money back guarantee if for any reason it fails to meet your expectation (All parts must be returned in original condition), and a TWO YEAR replacement guarantee (The product should not be damaged or subjected to over-voltage.)

SOLD ONLY IN THE USA AND CANADA. For international sales visit Speedo Healer

Most bikes with stock gearing are off 8 to 10%.
If you change sprocket sizes it just gets worse from there.
We stock the Speedo Healer. I've used it on all of my bikes as well as a ton of customers. We check calibration by GPS and when properly calibrated it is spot on.
