SpeedoHealer question

I installed a 43 tooth rear sprocket on my V a while back. I figured I'd put on a Speedo Healer at the same time to compensate for the increased speedo error.

My question is regarding induced odometer error from the Healer. I figured I had about 13% total speedo error so I set the Speedo Healer for a -10% correction, figuring it would make me close to accurate and still leave a little margin for error. Since the odometer is pretty accurate from the start and I introduced about 5% error with the sprocket, would I be correct in assuming my odometer now reads about 5% under the actual mileage?

Let me know if you think my reasoning is correct.

I'd think it would be more accurate to just go out on the highway and check the odometer reading against the mileposts.

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
