    Speedometer Inaccuracy and Speed Limiter

    Am I correct in thinking the CT is limited to 131mph?

    My speedo is reading about 10% high throughout the range and therefore in theory, the actual restricted speed of my bike is about 118mph.

    The CT should be limited to 137mph and yes, the speedometer is reading more than you actually ride.
    Not sure if the limitation should be actual speed or the speed on the speedometer.
    But you really don't want go much faster than that 118, there is a reason why the CT is limited at a lower speed than the 1200F.
    Without cases the 137 real miles would be fine but with cases it tends to get very light in the front.

    I'm not recommending traveling at that speed. However, it still remains that the CT has a relatively low top speed because of speedometer inaccuracy.
    For the record, my speedometer is about 10% inaccurate, the odometer is 2% out and the mpg is correct.
