Yes, you are running up more miles on your odometer than you are actually going. Nothing much good about that except if you get a few more miles on before some maintainence event you may still be on track.Thanks,I did think I was getting good mpg,on another plus side the total mileage is actually lower than recorded??
I'm glad I didn't have to go through all that! Must be a pain to install.my speedo is off @4 MPH, verified with my Garmin GPS.
So, I normally go 5MPH over speed limit. I do have a speedo healer but, just haven't installed it yet...too much fairing parts to take off, just to find the connector, connect it, program it and reassemble just to see if I set it right...
If not, remove all parts and start over. I'll just go 5 over.
Sadly, sometimes Honda doesn't correct known issues until they are forced to. Here was the issue in the Honda car world.Riding with my two buddies on their new BMW K1600s I am consistentlyrecording 8 or 9 miles more at the end of the ride.
It doesn't bother me but just thought I would ask the question.
Never thought of looking at it that way before,mine is an 06 US or Canadian model which are slightly different than a UK model,it's way over any warranty work.Sadly, sometimes Honda doesn't correct known issues until they are forced to. Here was the issue in the Honda car world.
John buys a new acccord and it came with Honda's standard bumper-to-bumper 3yr-36,000 mile warranty. Like our GoldWings, his speedo and ODM are off on the high side by about 10% too. Unfortunatly for John, his automatic transmission fails at 37,000 miles. And guess what ... it's out of warranty. His argument ... "but if my speedo and ODM were accurate, I'd be well with in my warranty. Honda's replay ... "bummer for you !!!"
Thus a class action law suit was started. Fortunanly for John, he was eventually reimbursed for his transmission repair, and for all future Honda car and GW owners, like everything else on the highway these days, our speedos and ODMs became more acurate.
In the GW world, our warranty expires at the 3 year mark. In the Honda car world, mileage can end it also. My bet says any one who paid for a repair that shouldn't have, got a refund.Never thought of looking at it that way before,mine is an 06 US or Canadian model which are slightly different than a UK model,it's way over any warranty work.
