Along the same lines, I think I remember reading somewhere that on ABS models the speedo signal is obtained from one of the ABS sensors rather than picking up a signal from the output of the transmission as is common on a lot of motorcycles.  Can anyone confirm or deny this?  This would allow gearing changes without an affect on mph or odometer.  Thanks.
This theory matches my experience - I put a 15T front sprocket on my 800XC with ABS, and can confirm that the speedo reads exactly the same as it did with the original 16T. i.e. reads 6% fast.
E.g. 106km/h indicated is 100km/h on the GPS.

Silly question are you saying that the sprockets are the same on the tripple as the tiger ?

Yes the sprockets on the Tiger 800 are the same as on the Street Triple. I should know I have changed both front and back.
