UPDATE to SpeedoHealer on Gen 3 FJR1300

UPDATE: With the TWO SpeedoHealers installed, after a couple weeks I started getting a somewhat regular cruise error. When I would turn on the Cruise power, the yellow Cruise light on the instrument would flash and the cruise would not work. Usually, stopping and turning the engine off then starting again stopped it. But it recurred several times. I put the second (front wheel) SpeedoHealer into bypass mode and it has not happened since.

So if you are going to install a SpeedoHealer on a Gen 3, I recommend you install on REAR wheel speed circuit only. I have tested ABS and TC at low speeds and they APPEAR to me to be working fine. I still get the cruise 'dropout' once in a while, but having a deadly accurate speedo is very nice and I don't mind occasionally hitting the Set button again.

Surely there is a speedo fix that will allow for the proper working of the bike?

What do the Police use on their Gen3 and Gen4 to obtain an accurate speedo? Or do the Police rely on their radar/laser?

I have read up on the install and not too keen on hacking into the harness (being an ex cop bike, it already has a heap of extra wiring).

Is there a plug and play alternative?

I have an 2014 ex police bike. They run the gen1 speedo sensor and an extra digital speedo, see http://www.fjr13.org/forum/index.php...-the-sds.6439/


My bike came with the sensor still installed but the speedo removed. Given that it's just a 3 wire hall effect sensor you could probably use something like this https://www.intellitronix.com/speedometer

I find this speedo issue a tad galling too...
I mean really?
All the technology that goes into this bike and they can't get the speedo to read accurately..??
I've decided that I'm just going to have to do a little math when out riding.
If the sign says "100KM MAX"... I'm going to run at an indicated 110.
Close enough

Obviously they can get it right, the odo reads correctly. I believe it's for legals reasons that they intentionally have it miscalibrated. If you follow the factory speedo you'll never get a ticket.

I wonder if Ivan can correct this in his ECU flash? Maybe someone that has it can ask him.

Yes, it is deliberate - in some countries. USA speedos are pretty accurate.

I cannot imagine cutting into the wiring harness to fix a tiny and known speedo deviation. We all have our idiosyncrasies.

No commercials. No dictators.

I installed the 12o'clock labs corrector and it is working fine so far. I just returned from a 4,000 km jaunt and at one time had the cruise on for nearly 1 hour and no drop out. I installed 1 unit using the info on the site from sbandit, not particularly difficult. One thing I did notice is that my mileage also changed, I got less mpg, which makes me think that the odometer takes it's info off the rear tire. I used a correction factor of 8.4% and with worn tires was pretty much bang on, but with new tires I was off 1-2 (under reads) kmph.

With all the farkles I have on the '05, I have tapped into the OE harness 4 times and cut it only once.

I'm a firm believer in leaving it alone if possible.
