    speedometer accuracy

    Just purchased a 07' Kawasaki Ultra 250 w/ supercharger with 30 hours. Took it out for the first time and top speed was only 55mph, but friends Honda was reading 63 mph running with me. Can the speedo be that far off and what is top speed for a stock 250? Thanks, GT

    average top speed is 65. I dont rely on dreamometers, as we call them. they are usually affected by some sand in the wheel. GPS is the only true speed if you are trying to measure accurate.
