2009 Yamaha R1 questions?

So I have had my r1 for a couple months now. First question I gues is does the different modes effect the speedo reading at all? Sometimes I feel like im not going as fast as it tells me I am, I keep forgetting to grab my GPS to verify it. Previous owner said nothing was done with gearing. I have only been riding it in standard mode so far getting used to the bike and letting new tires wear in while adjusting the bike for me. With all this warm weather and getting more and more comfortable with the bike I think im ready to click it up to the A mode if im remembering right that is the most power setting. Wondering if anyone can tell me how much more power does this give over standard? Thanks!

Yahama's power control modes only affect the throttle by wire. It doesn't do anything to power output like other manfs do.

In STD mode, throttle it tamed a bit until 7k or so, then it's the same as A mode.

Your speedo is off if it's a stock bike. You're going slower than your speedo indicates.

Speedo is independent of any of the electronic throttle stuff.

A and B have the same HP output, the only difference is throttle response. A will be a lot more aggressive n for the most part sucks for street riding. Specially round town, its very choppy. C mode has less hp and is for rain.

Have Nel flash your ecu if it hasn't been flashed yet. Bike will be a lot more friendly to ride around n will have a few more hp. Did wonders for my 11.

Also if you want a comfort gel seat send me a pm, best factory aftermarket seat you'll find. Yamaha 14B F47C0 V0 00 R1 Comfort Seat New | eBay

Did all r1's come with the speedo off from stock then? Why would they do that? And thanks for the info from you both. For the ecu to be flashed im assuming ide have to remove it and send it in?

Speedo's are off on most bikes, specially those that don't pull it off the wheel. If yours is way off there is a good chance you don't have stock gearing. Count the teeth on yer sprockets. I believe 17 47 is stock. Find one of those "you speed is" radar speed limit sign thingies and ride by it:P

You can send them in. I suggest a ride over and have him do it at the shop so you can check it out and ask for tweaks. I'm sure there is a fun route over the pass:P

I believe he can also fix issues with the speedo's if its gearing related.

Give them a call is my suggestion:P

All super sports are off from the factory. No idea why they do it. It's not that they can't get it right, it's that they explicitly set it off by a bit (usually 5-10%). And it always reads faster than you're actually going - never slower.

And it's *usually* just super sports. Every non-super sport bike I've had is pretty dead on. (Few Kawi's, 1 Yahama, and 1 Honda)

Speedos have always been off and sometimes by large margins, since I started riding street bikes in 1982.

Speedo on all my bikes is way off compared to GPS.

When my speedo displays 70mph, GPS says:
Triumph - 65-66mph
DR650 - 63mph

I assume the DR650 is off more because the tires are super worn down from their stock size, increasing the RPM for a given speed compared to stock.

My car, on the other hand, is only off by 1-2mph at 70mph compared to GPS.
