This has been discussed I'm sure but I've not found any reference in older threads. The speedo error at highway speeds is significant with the 650. How much change in accuracy can be expected by going to a 16 or 17 tooth front sprocket? I would like to lower rpm at cruising speeds and perhaps gain some speedo accuracy also.

The 650's speedo sensor is on the front wheel. Gearing changes make zero difference.

They all seem to read high. My speedo reads 9% - 10% high and my odometer about 2&1/2% - 3% high. You can buy an after market faceplate for your speedo to correct the speed problem. However, that will do nothing for the odometer. I just live with it hoping it will save me a speeding ticket.

Get yourself a Speedohealer. My V was out over 20% because of a sprocket change but with the healer it's not exact. I calibrated it with a gps so it's spot-on. You can adjust it as the tire wears to keep it dead on as well. Worth every penny.

Sprocket change will not affect the speedo on the DL650 as Greywolf noted above. Tire diameter can cause a slight change as the tire wears. After market front tires with a different profile would do the same.
