Question '02 R6 New Sprocket-Speedo setup

Hello, I recently bought a 2002 R6 and it already had an aftermarket 520 sprocket on it. Could this be the reason the speedometer is off? For instance I have to be reading about 80-85 mph to keep up with the flow of traffic in a 60mph zone. Could it really be nearly 20 mph off? And if so, is there anything I can do to re-calibrate the speedo for the smaller sprocket? BTW, it is a digital speedo.
Thanx

Oh ya, I know exactly what you're saying, but I seriously doubt that a dozen cars and 3 semi-trucks were all doing 85 in a 60, leaving me in their dust. I should have been a little more descriptive of my experience. I'll keep prying for a way to correct my speedo.

I have a yellowbox on the busa for the 220mph gauge conversion. Its fully adjustable from .23-45% I believe, both directions. there is a conversion chart for all gear changes, etc. About $100

http://www.blackrobotics.com/yb_home.htm

And Patrick probably will have a calibrator instock...

Recommend finding a speed track checker and make some runs... Good luck finding one, I always find one by chance

I think the Speedohealer is around $120? Easy install, just need a BFH to fit the plugs together...

Have one on the BUSA. It's spot on. Have Patrick do the install and get it set up right.

Or even easier, just get a $20 front sprocket in stock size.
