edit:33/11 final drive on mine so its probably different. defiantly gets me closer though.

Fair warning, I am a geek....I took the formula from Snowbum's page, figured out what the speed would be equal to at 3500 RPM, and then checked where the speedo read from there. After making adjustments until it was a couple mph high, my wife suggested that I toss a GPS in my tank bag and check my work......she is the smart one in this marriage, I guess......If my math holds up, you would be about 2 mph lower than mine.
