2018 DL1000 16 43 sprocket change

Hi I have just installed 16T front sprocket an a 43T rear sprocket on my2018 DL1000, can anyone tell me where my speedo and odo are calculated from please and would a Healtech speedo healer cure the inaccurate speedo reading that 16 43 sprockets are giving me.
Regards
Steve

I went for a 16T in front and used the healtech speedo with the pigtail that connect behind the cluster. It corrected the speed, but you will have to be inventive if you are using the pigtail since it doesn't have the rubber boot that protect the cluster from water ingress.

Now you might help me indentify an issue I have. I've run TC in mode 1 pretty much since I have the bike, but switched to mode 2 in November since it was riding under the freezing point. Unless I was crazy smooth on the throttle TC would kick in. Now I removed the healtech and seems to have made it a little less sensitive, but still nowhere it should be and I'm wondering if the smaller sprocket is screwing the computer and think it slipping since the engine rev more than the speed it sense.

do you have a similar issue in mode2?

On 2018 speedo is picking up the signal from ABS sensor, so no sprocket change would affect the speed reading. That has been largely discussed in this forum.
As for TC control, I have 16T front sprocket and TC2 is just a bit more sensitive then it was with 17T. However I use TC2 only on heavy rain conditions and at that point I have to be careful on throttle beacuse of slippery road. I'm yet to see TC kick in on TC2. On dry road I use TC1 and it would kick in only if I exagerate on throttle while exiting the corner. For me, all is working well.
Speedo Healer is good thing to correct the intentionaly factory installed over-reading of the speed. A friend of mine use it on 50% as he does big miles every day so he could sell the bike in 2 years with half of the miles on the clock.

ok then I have another issue, mine on dry pavement will kick in instantly if I give more than 10% throttle.

I like to have the correct speed as where I am they tolerate 19km/h over the posted limit so it's nice not having to calculate your speed all the time.

I remember, on the thread that discussed 16T sprocket there was one member that had the same problem. No metter what he'd have done, TC would kick in all the time. I don't remember how it ended up but you can try to look for the thread called "16T TRUE LOVE" or something like that.
I'm on my second DL1000 with sprocket changed to 16T and no problem at all. The previous one was '14 model.

no the sprocket change will not affect the speed or mileage reading.

The 2014 gets it's reading from the front wheel.

Since having my bike tuned on a dyno I spend a lot more time with the front wheel in the air. LoL
