Speedometer Correction

I have changed to gearing on my '02 DL1000 and the speedometer was no longer reading even close to accurate. I do have a GPS and a Sigma bicycle speedometer that provide the correct speed readings but I wanted the motorcycle speedometer to be closer to accurate and the same for odometer.

On this list I found a link to an item called a SpeedoDRD by a company called 12oclocklabs. I looked at their website and felt there item would fill my needs. I ordered the unit on the internet on Sunday and received the unit on Thursday the same week. On their website they have a correction calculator to simplify the correction process and you can even print out the setup for your specific adjustment.

I installed the unit on Thursday and took the bike for a ride and the speedometer in now dead on for MPH from 10 up to at least 85 mph. I was only able to check to that speed due to road limitations at that time. I would expect that the accuracy is good at higher speeds. Also, since the unit is reprogrammable, if I change the gearing, I can readjust the unit for the new gearing change. Good Stuff.

The odometer is closer to accurate than it was but not as accurate as the speedometer. I guess you cannot have it both ways.

Since the unit has a 3 year warranty, I feel that it is money well spent.

Here is a link to their website: http://www.12oclocklabs.com/


Ride Safe

It's okay. You are allowed.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

I apologize, It is my natural reaction from years of being on forums, if a user comes and makes a first post with a link I usually regard it as spam.

Either way if the original poster is truly are a consumer just plugging a good product then thank you

Every night, we get a number of far East spam posts so we are sensitive to product links on first posts.

Price is reasonable. Looks like a simple install. If I ever watched my speedometer I might consider getting one.

Other than the first post, wonder if anyone else has tried this?

What are the other options for speedometer corrections?
My unit is off about 5 MPH from low to high


Thanks!!

I wanna know how to correct both the speedometer and the odometer.

So how much is the little circuit board and how does it get installed? Go it pictures. We like pictures.

It is $80 and they have installation instructions.

Vstrom 650 ABS
'09 DR650
'07 Vulcan 900 LT
