Odometer Accuracy





#1
To the point, I travel 32.2 miles to work in the car, never more than 32.5 and never less than 32.

On the bike I recorded 34.5 to work today :wtf:



Is it possible to ride this extra distance on such a short route or is my odometer well out?


For the record I stayed on my side of the road for the whole journey and never went round in circles at roundabout trying to get my kneedown :rofl:

You must have spun the back tire at each traffick light, that calculates to more than a couple of miles of wheel spinning!!:poke:

Seriously, the speedo/odo is closer to 10% reading fast on my GenII. Why worry about it, just do the math while riding and you know your true speed?

I had a big smile averaging 51 miles per gallon, but after riding with the GPS, I realized I am actually getting 46 m/g.

Good points, but your bike is worth more for trading in with less miles. That could equate to a few thousand miles over a period of time. :lol:

On my '05 the speedo was out by 7% but the odometer was right on. I've installed a Yellow Box ,similar to a Speedohealer, and now the speedo is right on but the odometer is low. Better for trade in value I guess.

When I got my 99 I also got the extended service.

This is what the gave me.

They know the odometer was off.

That is why it has 999,999.:thumbsup:
