Can someone please give me the speedometer difference on my R6. What is the difference if I'm showing 65 MPH what is the actual speed?

I attempted to find this on earlier posts couldn't locate.

Thanks

It's going to vary a little from bike to bike. Not everyone's reads the same with the same sprocket combo.

The best way to calculate how far off it is is to use a GPS. Plenty of free speedo apps for phones.
If you want it to read correctly or closer you'll need a spedo drd or other brand of Speedo calibrator

Just pop a wheelie past the speed cameras and theres no need to look at the speedo!!
I've got same sprockets as you on 520 chain and seems to be 4-5 mph out. I just got my mate to ride next to me to check. It then turned into a race but that's a whole other story lol

It's not a matter of being a certain mph off. The bike is a percentage off which will change the amount the mph off as you go slower and faster.
