14 tooth

I put a 14 tooth sprocket on my 2014 klr a month ago, just took it out in the hills where i live yesterday for the first time. its a new bike(again), rips up the steep mountain roads like never before. I still hit 65(on speedo) easily and stayed there with the 14. My Guess is it 5mph off?) I will leave it since i will not be doing long freeway cruises on my KLR, my 2014 Glee is for that.
My question is how far off is the speedo with a 14 tooth?
thanks

The speedometer operation is determined by the rotation (angular velocity) of the front wheel only.

The countershaft sprocket has nothing to do with the indicated ground speed.

That said, KLR speedometers run from 5-10 % "optimistic," from published GPS comparisons.
