E-07 sidewall is very stiff - I used a tire machine to install it and with lube took 90psi to get the bead set. Next time I'll try the non-Dakar version.
Still running the TKC80 front. Caution on the softer sidewall - I dropped pressure to 22psi off-road and tweaked the front rim a bit. Now I keep pressure 25psi or higher.

Re: the ambient temperature reading
Don't feel bad - BMW took a long time to get it right - I had an 06 BMW R1200RT. Original sensor location was above the rear wheel, then moved to right front outer fairing. Temp reading would stabilize after 10 minutes of steady (dry) riding but was inaccurate in stop-go traffic and a bit off in rain.
Was the cause of endless threads complaining about accuracy on forums at the time - that and the oil level sensor reporting low oil when all was OK - and people adding oil because of the sensor without checking the sight glass. Thus overfilling the oil, which puked out into the airbox causing blue exhaust smoke and in some cases popped out the oil level sight glass.
Electronic 'features' not done right cause too many complaints and dealer warranty claims. Please Honda can I have:
- heated grips that get hot
- a speedo that is better than 10% off (the ODO is accurate!)
- a temperature sensor that is close to reality

Anyone know exactly what or how "ECM reset" is done?
There is no mention of it in the Service/Repair manual.

To make a long story short.
The speed sensor is positioned on the left top side of the gear box (under the battery housing). This means the sensor is counting the revs of the rear wheel via the "drive chain connection" (this is, as well the reason why a change of the sprocket influences the speedo value displayed).
The speedo count pules ONLY.
Corresponding to the extent of the standard tires this means x turns of the rear wheel are equal to a speed of y.
The ECU now says I take the y and add +10% and display this value as actual speed.
No you could see easily how the speed is measured and why the shown speed is influenced by which tire you have mounted on rear.
Nevertheless, this roughly 10% are always added by the ECU.

I had the OEM tyres for 8k miles now Conti's the speedo error has been 9% in both cases.

AT does not read speed from front wheel.
Iíve a Canadian 2017 manual. With TKC80ís the speedo reads 10% high across the range. With a new Mitas E-07 Dakar rear itís only 5% high.
From what I read US bikes are near spot on for speedo accuracy.
ECM reset will not cure Speedo or temp readings.

My speedo shows 72mph while my GPS shows 70. (shows 41-GPS 40) I have not paid any attention above 70. That is just over 2% error on my bike. 10% seems very high. Are you seeing this only on the KMH or on MPH also?
By the way, my GoldWing did the same until I went to a 70 rather than a 60 profile rear tire. Just a little taller tire buy put the speedo dead on. But that won't work on the AT because it reads the speed from the front wheel while the Wing reads through the transmission.
