All my speedos have been way off, with the exception of the X9 500SL, which was fairly accurate.

I use a cheapo cycle 'computer' to calibrate speedos with 30, 40, 50, 60 and 70 mph marks, made of 1mm strips of white tape about 1cm long. Thereafter I ignore the dial marking entirely!
This really does solve the problem. Where did you come up with the 1mm wide white tape?
It was 1cm wide tape (actually a labelling tape) cut in 1mm strips. Electrical tape would do fine.

At an indicated 80mph my scoot is GPS verified at 73mph.
I'm gonna check at 30 - 40 and 50 next. I reckon on average mine is going to be around 10%.
