Speedometer error?

Go by one of those "your speed" cameras that we have around many cities here
and check your calibration.  Or as we did in the old days, use a second hand
on your watch when you pass a mile marker on the interstate and see if it's
exactly 60 seconds later (if you're going an indicated 60mph) when you see
the next marker.

Mine was slow by about 5mph.

Well, I've noticed lately, when I'm cruising on the freeway at 70, people
are blowing past me, and when I'm doing 85, I'm slowing passing people.  Is
the GPZ's speedometer off?  I know the Ninja 250 has an 8% error, but does
the GPZ suffer from the same?
