Anyone know if you can adjust the odometer????

I was wondering if anyone knew if you can change the ratio on a 2016 DL650A odometer? I have changed the rear sproket from the 47 rear to a 42. The speedo is now [email protected] and the ODO is now showing 1.1 miles per 1 on the trip. I have a 2001 DRZ400S and I found out that I can change the ratio of the odometer and shows as percent buy the right combination of the buttons. I have played with it and could really change the ODO. I dont want a speedo healer. I would rather just deal with the error, BUT!~ Can I do this ODO adjustment on the DL like I can on the DRZ?

The speed sensor is in the front wheel so you shouldn't have experienced a speedo change. I know I didn't when I changed sprockets

Edit: I just read it's a 2016. I'm not sure since I have a k6

Speed sensor is on the countershaft sprocket on 2012+ DL 650. I know of no other way than using a SpeedoHealer or similar device. Your speedometer is now MUCH more accurate with the 42t rear sprocket than it was with the factory size! Either way, either the countershaft ( 16t makes it almost exact ) or going with fewer teeth on the rear sprocket, or using one of the electronic devices that correct the speed you WILL lose accuracy of the Odometer. Mine reads less miles than I actually travel with the 16t countershaft sprocket.

Yeppers! The speedo sensor fires from the rear primary shaft on the 2016. I think there is a way to adjust the ODO but finding the combination of buttons to push to change it has eluded me...

The speedo error being less with 42 rear sproket is very true! The factory setup was 3MPH under @55 indicated on my bike. Now it is +2 @ 55MPH. I dont know what the ODO was reading before I changed the rear sproket. I didnt check it till after I put on the 42T. Man..... The factory rear sproket was the size of a dinner plate!

If you are that focused on having a correct speedometer why not buy a GPS? I have one in my car and I use that for reading my speed all the time. It is so much more accurate ALL the time no matter what your gearing, your tyres, your tyre pressures or how worn they are.

I agree with the GPS! I have one on the top of my tank bag. I dont really care about the speedo but the odometer I want correct. When counting up miledge and having the correct miles driven without adding the .1 per mile just is less I have to think about.

You said you don't want the device that can handle the situation. The speedo/odo run off a pulse from a Hall effect sensor. A device like a SpeedoHealer or a SpeedoDRD that modifies the pulse rate is the only way to make a change to the stock instrument. You could add another device like a bicycle speedometer/odometer if that will handle what you want.

Are you aware the stock odometer is about 2% high with stock gearing?

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

Wolfman, You are correct! I would just rather do the simple math on the ODO and deal with it then get the healer. I just thought Suzuki gave the same option to ba able to adjust the ODO on th display like they gave on the DRZ I have.

And.... No, I didnt know what the stock error was. Good to know thoe. Mine is +10% now with that 42T rear.
