Nice wheels But why Speedohealer, it's not that time consuming to set the wheel diameter on the speedo?

Actually, it takes LONGER to change the setting on the Speedo Healer then it does to change the wheel diameter on the speedo.

I haven't tried changing the diameter. How does this affect the ODO reading (which seems pretty close to my GPS ODO)?

Not aware I could do that! The advantage that did sell me was the new toggle switch, with a push of that button I can switch between the dirt or street wheel settings. I need to look into changing the speedo before I start the project....

Nice shot! Was that on a track or on public roads?

That looks great!!! I was hoping that would work. Did you adjust your speedo for the new setup? If so how did ya do it?

It corrects the ODO as well. You can even tweek your wheel size if you change tire brands or even to account for wear. I'm not that anal. I just change it when I switch the wheel sets.

That's how you change the diameter, but first you have to unlock the setting by unplugging one pin from the speedo.

On 2012 and later models it's the 18th pin (gray/brown). You can either cut the wire or take the pin out and insulate it.

After you've unlocked the speedo you can change the setting as described in the link.

Good point. I added that to the wiki. If anyone knows the details for pre-2011, I'll hunt for it but if you can add a pointer here, that'd be helpful too.

On 2009-2011 R you just unplug the largest contact going from the speedo, set diameter and replug it. No cutting needed.

That's what I was afraid of. My ODO is not inaccurate (when compared to the GPS). Having an accurate ODO is more useful than speedo when it comes to estimating how many miles you can go.

Success!!!

First I have to say, you guys are a wealth of information and it is much appreciated! My projects on the 690 have been a great success, now only if my other projects could go so smooth. Had a chance to cut fork guards and attempt the speedo calibration today. Absolutely no need to spend the $150 for speedo healer and universal kit! I should have asked you guys before I purchased... Anybody need one for another project?

Two bolts and the whole front panel w/ headlight comes off, unplug harness and I was there. Snip the correct color wire for your year model and plug back in...


My stock setting was 2205 I did change it to 1870 and it is much better.


I took some cuts outta my fork guards (that didn't fit with new wheels):


The result! Drum roll please...


Now its time to ride the crap outta it!!!

The ODO would be way off if you put 17" wheels and tires on it and didn't change the wheel size.
