Re: gearing change affect speedo readout? (gregc)

If the trigger pick up is on the front sprocket yes. It will read faster than you are actually traveling and put more miles on. This should go without saying but I feel the need to be Captin obvious. If the pick up is on the front wheel, no.

no gearing change will affect your speedo reading. on the '00 900ss/ie, the speedometer's run off the front axle. so if you wheelie a lot, your "mileage" will be lower than actual

Thanks, sometimes I miss the real obvious stuff. Easier to ask than think, huh?
Greg ...:)
