I'm very poor with math and hoping someone can help me with a question.
The odometer is reading 8000km but it's reading speed incorrectly and logging the speedo speed to the odometer. For KMs 2000-6000 it's logging at 18kmph over, and 6000-7000 is logging 10kmph over. What is the accurate reading it should be showing?
If a motorcycle travels:
1000km with accurate speedometer reading
6000km with the speedometer reading 18kmph over actual speed (50kmph reads 68kmph roughly)
1000km with the speedometer reading 10kmph over actual speed. (50kmph reads 60kmph roughly)
How many actual kilometers were traveled?
I don't know how to phrase this question to look up an answer online.
If I can do it by % change the sprocket ratios are:
13/43 for 1000km
13/50 for 6000km
14/50 for 1000km
Would I calculate the % increase in kmph from the actual kmph to the indicated kmph and then subtract that from the indicated odometer reading (for 1k,6k,1k)? If I'm traveling 30% slower than indicated can I just subtract 30% of the total odometer reading (km) for that time frame when I was running whatever gear ratio?
Thanks to anyone who wants to help! I know this isn't a challenging question in the slightest to a lot of you here but I'm not sure where else to ask for proper help.
Thanks so much! If there is a more relevant place to post please let me know. Also this isn't a elementary textbook question I'm just putting on a new speedometer unit for my dualsport, haha.
