IIRC there is about a 5mph error that reads "fast". So when it says 65 you are doing 60 really... It was a while ago and many mods ago that I ran down the freeway next to the wife in the car...

My '06 Thruxton is about 5MPH fast at about 65 MPH (actually going 60 per the GPS).

Thanks, Most of the Jap speedos are about 7 mph off at highway speeds.
