How many more miles?

The speedometer from the factory has I believe a 10% overage (it shows you are travelling faster than you actually are. ie: when the speedo shows you at 50 mph, you are actually only travelling 45 mph).

I would think this overage would also carry to the odometer, as most are directly linked. That might explain a slight difference (up to 10%).

I could be wrong as I'm just throwing this out there from previous experience on other bikes and vehicles...

Hi Thanks for that but I only noticed because of a short ride yesterday, about 35 miles showed over 50 ,it seemed near to killometers, but this is the old cable driven 2008 speedo milage etc so don't see how it could change to kilometers .....
