hey well my speedo gear is all wacko af course (way off) I havent got a new gear. I was waiting untill i got new tires on it and then i would get the proper gear for it...anyways right now it reads 42 mph when i am going 50 kmh......could i get a gear that would infact make my speedo read in kmh? its really close right now.. would i need a bigger gear or a smaller gear in order to do this???

He's talking about making his mph speedo read in km/hr, not making it read correctly

I THINK you can divide your correctly calculated speedo gear ratio (driven divided by drive) number by 0.62 and round it and that will get you as close as you can get.

When I put 4.11 gears in the '66 the mph speedo read very accurately in KPH, too bad we don't live in Canada.
