I know its a silly little thing but my temp readout it way off. It said today that it was 15c outside today and it wasn't even 10c Why have it if its not even close to correct !!
Is anyone else having this problem ??

yup.
Were you parked or riding?
Heat soak of the sensor on a recently ridden bike parked on hot pavement in the sun - you expect the temp sensor to show proper ambient? Even cars take a few minutes and miles (km) to dial in the temperature on a frosty morning after leaving a heated garage.

My temp. is usually a bit out - usually by 2-3 degrees celcius (high). I think there was another thread here that suggested other owners noticed a similar margin of error on their bikes, too.
Funny, on two other Honda bikes the temp gauge was dead on.

I thought my speedo was out by around 10 mph at highway speed when I first got mine, but GPS says it's 1-2 mph high at 70. Literally, YMMV.
