Speedometer is showing the wrong speed

During the years I have read a lot of TS owners reporting about 14% deviation, thats too much in my opinion, sadly easy to fix in the software, but still no tools/interface available for us to play around with the software... (also a clock visible in the cluster I want to "wake" up!)

I put a bigger tire on my rear rim to get some more accurate speedometer, changed original 100/70-17 to 100/90-17 - that was maximum dimension that fits under the rear fender.

- 4 cm bigger in diameter

- From 1796mm to 1920mm (+124mm) in circumference

- 7% less rev/km from (557 to 521)

- Will take me 12 cm longer for each rev of the motor!

@super-honda how accurate is the speedometer now that you have a bigger tire? I also noticed the clock in my TSx but the dealer knows nothing about how to make it work. It would be great if we could somehow interface with the controller. Love my TSx but it's these little things with the software that annoy me.

The new tire is about 9% bigger, so speedometer shows still about 6% (was 14%) less than actual speed, but with a deviation that is more normal. 

Have owned my TS for two years now and stopped hoping that some community would fix an interface so you could start fixing some mods, such as throttle response, the clock in the display etc.
How difficult can it be, every single game console has its own crowd of loyal programmers who manage to mod most things!

Or a simple thing like software upgrades, every single cell phone gets a couple every year with improvements - from Soco nothing!

@super-honda I agree that the Sumco should already have made a possibility for the end user to customise and play around with the software of the controller -albeit potential loss of warranty which I'm sure many of use couldn't care less about.

As far as users from the community trying to find something out, I wish it were as simple as a game console or a mobile phone -let me explain what I'm getting at.
To continue with your examples of mobile phones and game consoles, they're not items that could radically change your day to day life if they're a long time out of service. But 2 weeks or a month with the SS on the healing bench could prove to be a huge pain in the rear for most users here (including myself). 
It's now my main form of transportation thus tinkering with it is something I procrastinate whenever is possible.
