PostSubject: Speedo Healer   Thu Feb 14, 2013 12:14 pm

I am considering fitting one because as we all know most speedo's and ours are no exception are way out.
The Healtech item for instance is £85, which seems a lot but I would like to look at my speedo and know that it is telling me the truth for a change. So this is an item that I will probably be getting in the not to distant future. LINK

Just wondered if anyone else on here was either considering or had fitted a speedo healer?

yeah that always bothers me. I run a tom tom gps mostly because it gives me true MPH. I just downloaded a new App. on my Iphone that gives me full screen mph. The speedhealer sounds like a good deal.

How does the speedo healer work? Would you use a GPS to calibrate it initially, going off my sat nav , the speedo on my bike is reading 10% fast at all speeds.

I also use my gps to get true readings,I think all these bikes read at least 10% fast.

Mine is also 10% off. Just had a very quick look at the web site and they seem to be very easy to fit but I um unsure how you calibrate it, will have another look later.

Not sure Dave,one thing I would ask is the fact that you intend to use the shaft from a 1400 and will this upset the calibration.Just a thought,but worth asking.

Speed sensor is on the front wheel, right hand side, so no possibility of VS1400 drive change causing any issue.

I've just been thinking If the speedo is running at 10% too fast, Is the mileage clocking up at the same rate ?

I reckon it does, all works from one cog.

Good point on the shaft Dave,as regards to the milage,I have been out with mates and we have filled up with petrol,set our trip gauges and have had different readings when we we got back.

Then that would definitely give the impression that we are also getting stitched up on the mileage as well. At 10% that would mean that at 11000 miles you have only done 10000. Which reduces the value of your bike.

Plus the early service costs! £85 for the speedo healer would pay for itself over time.

There was an article in the motoring pages recently where a bloke was asking just which is morre accurate - his satnav or a speedo?

The reply came that satnav can never be 100% because it can only pinpoint your location to a yard or so, and averages how long you take to pass between 2 points.

Still sounds more accurate than any speedo, as the article said by law, no speedo as it comes off the production line can UNDERSTATE your speed, but they can overstate by up to 10% plus 6.25mph!

That's bonkers - actual speed 40, plus 10% = 44 + 6.25 = 50 on the speedo..... surely not.!!

I must admit, if I'm on 30mph road in the car, I tend to set the cruise control at 33, relying on the urban myth that your allowed 10%!

Nearly every vehicle that I have checked against a satnav has been off 10%

coppers will normaly give you the 10% but there are alot of cumpanys doing it now (not cops) with the van and speed trap outside or out of back window that don't as they dont have to or thats what a cop told me
