Speedo healer

Planning to go -1/+2 520 chain on my 05 R6. Will the Speedo be off drastically? Do I really need a healer? I rather just guess every time :P

Thanks guys.

I'd say just keep in mind the speedo will always be off a little bit...and ignore it like the rest of us do anyway.

It is far better to be thought of as a smartass than an dumbass. And as American Humorist Robert Benchley (1889-1945) noted, "no matter how well-intended, any reply to a dumbass question will inevitably appear smartassed". - Bob Hall (creator of the Miata)

If you got money to spare, sure why not. But I can always think of elsewhere to spend the money I'd spend on a speedo heeler lol. BTW, my shit is about 20% off, after a while you learn to do the calculation in your head pretty quick

I got one, install on the daytona sucked... but its pretty nice to have. Not sure how the odometer on your bike calculates miles but it might help with that too.

It will be off as in higher then what your really traveling at least for me it was.

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

So it looks like its not necessary, but nice to have. I thought it would be a drastic difference.

I've got one for my -1 front. Not knowing exactly my speed bothered me and it definitely exaggerates the total miles on your bike. Install was hooking up a power wire and plugging the unit in between some wires.

Install is like 30-45 minutes.
