    Switch No. 9 on Ahlman's Recalibrator?

    NOTE: IF THE DISPLAYED SPEED IS HIGHER THAN THE ACTUAL SPEED, OR YOU ARE GOING TO A HIGHER NUMERICAL RATIO (GEARING DOWN) THEN SWITCH 9 SHOULD BE 0. OTHERWISE SWITCH 9 SHOULD BE 1.

    I always confuse myself with the simplest things, so, IF I went from the stock 16/43 (530) to 16/44 (520) I am going to a higher numerical ratio right? Gearing down, right? Switch 9 should be set to 0, right?

    I'm just trying to figure if there's anything I'm missing on my setting of the recalibrator. At times it seems as if the speedo is displaying a higher speed than I'm actually going (usually lower speeds) AND other times it seems too low of mph setting (usually higher speeds). I'm going faster than that!!!

    When I went to the 15t (530) I had switch 9 = 0 and set at 12.5% and it seemed pretty accurate. With my 16/44 (520) I have it set to 8% and it just doesn't seem right. I'll figure it out once some decent weather freakin gets here, in the mean time I just figured I'd post and check the obvious. So, whether going down in the front or adding to the rear, switch 9 is set to 0? TIA

    Yes, that's the way I read it.

    I don't have one of these but I think what he means by all this is that switch 9 is used to set the recalibrator for either positive or negative speedo adjustment. The other switches set the amount of adjustment (in %). I'm sure you'll still want switch 9 at 0, but will have to adjust the error percentage.

    Thanks dB, that makes sense of switch 9 if set to 1 adjusts in the opposite direction. I'll figure out the error percentage. I'm no good at those 'if you go up here, you're actually going down here, therefore overall gaining in a lessening way'.

    I should add that "positive" and "negative" are relative to the nominal reading (no recalibrator), not from where you started with your last gearing.
