Default Speedo accuracy

Just curious, how accurate are the Vic speedos? I know my last bike (2007 Kawisaki Vulcan 900) was pretty off. It always showed about 5-10mph more than I was going.

According to my GPS, my speedo is about 3 mph optimistic. The speedo says 70, the GPS says 67.

Coming off a 900 too and using my GPS with the XCT. They are usually within a mile or two of each other. Mile wise over a 600 mile trip they were within 4 of each other.
