Ah, ok, I understand. I had a speedo-healer installed when I went -1 on the front sprocket. Therefore, my speedo is calibrated within one mph or so. The G2x timer display is on my front fairing, so I can see the GPS speed as well as the speedo when I'm riding down the street.

Hooligan, you aren't the only one. A lot of people think they are 145 to 160 on the back straight. Speedo error! particularly after they regear.

I have never looked at my speedo at MSRH, I just figured it was around true 150 but next time ill see what it says

Ha ha ha. No 150 on a 600. I'm 139 on the liter bike. With a fast guy (Larry Myers, Ty, Alonso, Mr Whoopie) on the liter bike, maybe 150.

I tapped 150 last outing with you guys but it was scarier than Sh*t setting up for the DE... but again, -1 tooth on the front, so not sure what the equates to... not like you want to look down anyway

Awesome video and set up, thanks for the film time

one down would make it 1/14 (7.1%) or 1/15 off (6.6%), plus the factory speedo error. Best guess, probably 12% off total. .88*150= 132 mph??
