Speedometer is showing the wrong speed
Hello, my speedometer on my TS is showing 10 km/h wrong. When I measured it with a gps I only got up to 50 km/h derestricted but the bike said I was going 60 km/h:( Does someone else have this problem or have had it and what can I do about it?
You're correct. The Super Soco speedometers indicate a certain percentage higher than the actual speed. The difference is small at low speeds and increases to about 10 km/h at top speed. When I zip past a radar speed sign at "70", it indicates around 60.
I'm sure it's deliberate. It's what lets them claim that the top speed is 70 km/h when it's much slower.
No speedometer is really 100% accurate
Putting a larger tire on it actually helps to lower the gap. But yeah. I use waze on a handlebar mount and the GPS speed is far more accurate
By regulations, speedometers can have 10% deviation. This is pretty standard internationally. Because of this, most bikes are made to be up to 10% over, to obviously look like higher speeds. This isn't unique to soco's, but actually pretty standard across motorcycles and the reason one of the first mods many motorcycle riders buy is a SpeedoHealer.
