I've had my share of wings...I don't recall any one of them that was closer than 5%.Even my 88 is showing 8%slower.
Whatever...I just roll along with traffic...I do notice it on the interstate and try to keep it within 5mph..
How about repurposing a old android phone...Get the HUD app free..It shows speed an direction either direct view or reflected...
I did this in my truck one night...cool...I may even adapt one to the bike for fun...I've got a few of them around to play with.

Thanks, I have 2005 1800, I ended up putting a series 70 tire on the rear to get the correct speed indication. JayB
