Speedometer correction

Post by felix barrao » Tue May 07, 2019 7:06 pm

I have on the way a 15 tooth pinion to install in the VTR instead of the stock 16 tooth, and I would like to install a device to correct the speedometer.
I have seen the speedohealer, and the speedoDRD ( hard to find in Europe).
Any other suggestion?
Thanks.

Yeah, use a torque marker (paint pen) and mark the needed speed limits on the plastic bezel of the the speedo clock. cheap and simple, works for me.

I would have recommended a Speedohealer, a nice bit of kit IMHO,

Installed today.
Needed a -11% correction to compensate the pinion change and the factory speedometer inaccuracy
