The speedometer on my R60/7 reads about 7-9 MPH high at highway speeds. I have a speedometer from an R100/7 I may hook up just to see if it gets better or worse.

I'm glad it's not just me getting under 40 MPG. My R60/7's running great so I'm not going to tamper with the Mikunis anymore. I'm running mid to upper 30s and an occasional 40.
