Speedometer

Anybody ever had issues with the speedometer? I have an 07 Special edition Rhino with an aftermarket CDI. That is all the engine upgrades I have done to it. After I installed it, I was at Johnson Valley, Soggy Dry Lake, and I was able to get it up to around 48 mph. Big deal! Anyway, this last weekend, at Gorman, down a sand wash, according to the speedometer, I got up to 55. I'm just not sure whether this is accurate or not.

I could show you, but then I would have to kill you.

The line must be drawn here! This far, no further! And I will make them pay for what they've done!

i have never heard of problems except going to kilo/mph, did you do a tire change between the 2? the only real way is to GPS to check accuracy.

terrain varies with tire spin and such around 52 with CDI is about it

48-50 is most common.

Varifyall of this with a 99 dollar etrex gps. Good to have anyways.

Hold the trip/odo button and then turn the key on. This will switch back and forth from mph to km.
