  1. Hi guys
    Got a speedo problem...
    My girlfriend's had her Ego250 since xmas now, but rides together are kinda frustrating as hell. We've worked out her speedo is over-reading, and as she's hesitant to exceed the speed limit we're stuck crawling along at 5 and 10 under the limit everywhere. I endured four hours of it today, and it completely SUCKED ASS.

    any one able to help with some pointers? are there any good specialists in Sydney/Western Sydney that handle this kind of thing? can a regular local Spanner tweak it?

    Thanks for your time and any advice, much appreciated
  2. No idea.
    But meanwhile a cheap alternative solution is to have her follow a vehicle with an accurate speedo sit on 60, then 80 then 100 so she can see what speeds those register on her speedo. Then she has an accurate reference.
  3. Mount a GPS, thats how i checked my speedo.
  4. similar to this, but with only one vehicle (hers). do an average speed test. mark out a kilometre, make her sit at indicated 60/80 etc and time how long it takes to determine how far out it is.
  5. Then install a "Speedo Healer" and eliminate the error.
  6. she's been looking at GPS units today, and I just checked the Speedo Healer site.
    cheers guys :)
