'09 Versys Odometer off by 20%
I recently purchased a 2009 Versys with appx 19,000 miles on it. The owner took good care of it and seemed like a stand-up guy. I brought it to a trusted independent mechanic who gave it a bill of good health (just needed new tires). I was on one of my first 75+ mile trips on it today and I noticed something... the odometer is pretty innacurate.
The owner did tell me that he changed out a sprocket to get "more low end umph" but for the life of him he couldn't remember how many teeth the new one had, whether it was the front or rear etc.
Anyway, for every ACTUAL mile I drive, the odometer only registers about 0.8 miles ridden. I've verified this using mile markers on highways as well as pre-routed routes using google maps. E.G. a trip to the store that is actually 2.4 miles only registered 2.0 miles on the odometer. I imagine this means my speedometer is off as well, but I don't have a GPS unit to verify.
Would the easiest way to fix this be just to return the unit to its stock sprocket setup? As I mentioned, the sprocket setup was done by the previous owner, and part of me would prefer to have the gears setup the way Kawi engineers intended.
Also, is there an easy way to identify which sprocket has been changed and to what kind? Sorry I know it's a newbie question, but the previous owner is of course MIA, and I don't want to pay a mechanic an extra hour of exploratory labor just to figure out which sprocket has been changed and to what. Thanks everyone!
