    How far off is the factory speed display? (stock 06 GPR)

    I took my ski out for the first time today, on a fairly calm lake, just a couple of tiny waves, and going wide open throttle one way (wind to my back) my display was reading 74mph max, and going the other direction (heading into the wind) my display was reading 72mph max. My question is how far off from the true speed is our factory display? And does that speed seem on par with a 06 GPR? Thanks everyone!

    Everyone get different #'s! I had mine spin 78mph when it was completely stock haha. Buy a GPS and you'll get your correct speed

    Funny, my stock one reads within a couple mph of my gps. Unless seaweed wraps around it, then it reads slower.

    Mine stock was about 8-9mph off. Now, with an angle ride plate and other mods, it reads about 123mph which is about 45mph off. You can put washers in between the speedo block and the ride plate to adjust how much water hits the pedals. This can get an off speedo in the ballpark, but there is only so far you can adjust and it will never be as accurate as a GPS. I use a handlebar mounted Garmin Foretrex and almost never look at the factory display anymore.

    yeah i'll probably go with a GPS and a TinyTach and only look at my factory display for warning lights and gas level.
