It ant the tires ! It's by design not an error. Every metric bike I've ever seen has a speedo that reads high by about 7%. Use it to keep the law off your ass.

I mounted a gps to my bike and it's off by about 4mph but i do believe that my 260 influenced that number

Thinking about installing a Speedo Tuner...anyone tried one on the RSW?

According to the calculator, my 190/55 actually reduces the overall speedo error...a little.
