    08 speedo display limits

    Let me start by saying I know the speedometer isn't accurate. But what I noticed today is that the speedo tops out at 70 mph (both digital and the digital gauge). I'm getting 66 on the GPS, but at about 62 MPH on the GPS, the speedo hits 70 and stays there. I pull out 4 more MPH and the speedo just stays at 70. Is there a limit there?

    I know it's kind of pointless, but I at least have an idea of accurate speed based on the dream-ometer's lies. But when it stops at 70, I can't really tell.

    Then why show 80 on the display???

    Or I guess a better question would be is there any way to make the speedo more accurate. My old 03 GTX SC was surprisingly accurate.

    It's fine just like it is... I get to many damn speeding tickets, the last thing I need is for it to go any faster

    Here is a quick fix for your jet ski.

    Many of us use these. Just wrap them around the handlebar.
