Hey i wanted to adjust my speedometer, which showed way to high, and misread the instructions, so i adjusted on the pot to te rev meter, is there a right way to get the rev counter calibrated ? my speedo is almost right now.

Never mind, i got the speedometer adjusted by the use of the gps in my phone and its shows just 1 or 2 km/h too much now, thats fine.
The rev counter i got adjusted too, just turning the pot a little bit a time until it shows 3000 rpm while speed is 80 km/h, it then follows the rev chart in my instrucktion book,
mine is an RS so is slightly higher geared than other models.
I guess if i had a device to connect to the ignition it would precisely tell me the engine rpm Smilebut i dont and they are expensive hehe. Keld

Hi Keld,

Try this link

This will take you to CF's description of the revs, but if you follow the post back you will get all the info you need to be able to use the Karamba software to accurately set up your speedo.
