    Just write off the speedo. All the aftermarket plates have that effect. There's a work-around to regain the stock speedo (inaccurate though it is) functionality, but it's more accurate, cheaper and easier to buy a GPS to monitor your speed.

    My speedo was not accurate from the factory. Changed the position of the plate with shims and it was even less accurate.

    If you want to know how fast you are going, mount a GPS. I use my GPS when I want to do speed runs and I also checked to see what 10 mph is at on the tach as I go through a limited-speed lake to get to another unlimited speed lake.

    For the record, my stock (modded by Jim) ride plate is epoxied where the pickup is and the wire is cut.

    I had the same problem on my 04 FXHO with the addition of the R&D plate. I put 2 washers between the sensor and the pate in the front (the front 2 mounting sensor bolts 2 washers under each) brought me back to pre- R&D reading. I would read 30-36 @ WOT,and fluctuate all over the place.Pretty much reading at stock plate #'s now.

    exactly ignore it: they call them deamometers for a reason.
