Speedo Calibration for a 2015+ 650

On the types of trips that I've been taking having a 10% error when above 100MPH can really add some variance to how long it should take me vs how long it did.

I found one for a 'xx-'13 V, can anyone confirm that the related bits are still the same?

Or, you could change out the rear sprocket to, iirc, 44 teeth. Then the speedo is accurate but the odometer is off.

Can do a rear sprocket, chain is being replaced anyways.

I don't know about any speedo boxes, just the one I randomly found on amazon and looked at before deciding it was better to ask questions here.

Like sig said you can do the rear sprocket change or you could call 12 o'clock. I have one for my 2008 , I have not tried it on my 2015

I found the speedo on MY '15 to be MORE accurate than on my '08 and '09 (6.5% vs 7%) compared w/ my GPS.

On my 2014 Green, I went for a ride the other day with my TomTom GPS plugged in to check speedo accuracy.
I was surprised to see that at 70 mph on speedo, GPS was 68.
65 speedo- GPS 63; 60 speedo- GPS 59; 55 speedo- 54 GPS. A lot closer than I expected.
