On my 2014 1190 ADV the screw turns the other way, counter clockwise to raise the beam! Even though the manual says it like you say! :

1190 Adventure Speedo Error

Most of us are using GPS to get accurate speedo measurements. But for my own interest, I went in to the owner's manual for the gear ratios (primary, secondary, and 1st thru 6th gear) to generate a table of RPM/Speed by gear. This assumes a stock 150/70ZR 18 rear tire. The resulting table of RPM/Speed, and RPM for specific speeds is shown in the attached pic.

Just turned over 4,000 miles yesterday, and from experience the table looks about right. I usually don't even think about shifting into 6th until I see ~62 mph on the speedo. Even then, it lugs and will quickly run back up to the 'sweet spot' in the torque curve around 4,000 rpm if I don't pay attention - well above legal speeds on back roads. The result is that 6th has become the 'freeway only' gear.

Nice spreadsheet. Here are links to a web based program I put together so you check gearing setups for any bike. The bike's gearing setups are stored in the URL so you can bookmark different setups. I have a set of dirt wheels with a 45 tooth rear sprocket for my 1190R Here's the link for that. The link for the OEM wheels and gearing. I'm using an actual measured circumference for the rear of 82.13 inches which is a little different than what you used.

DirtJack makes an excellent point. Actually measuring the tire circumference is always worth more than a calculation by Excel (compounded by the sin of showing 10 significant figures). The calculated circumference was 82.5 in. DirtJack put the number at 2086 mm, or 82.13 in. At 4,000 miles on the Conti Attack, I measured 81.5 in. The smaller 81.5 inch number would drop the 6th gear speeds in my table by a little over 1%. Probably in the noise anyway, as I find the response time of the digital readout to be somewhat slow - and at 6K rpm in 6th I'm focused more on hanging on than watching the readout.
