I hardly never look down at my tach just cruising around but if you want accuracy... just do the math.

You guys getting 3500....is that with a corrected speedo?

Mine does 90 mph indicated at 3500 with the stock speedo, 4000 at 100 mph indicated.

Motorcycle Consumer News says 2500 RPM at an actual 65 MPH in 5th, which means every 1000 RPM in top is good for 26 MPH. 85 = 3269 RPM.

Just wondering about the vibration at 85mph, with the windscreen. Does she give you any wobble or blurry mirror views. Took out an 05 R3 a couple weeks ago at a dealer but could only muster 60mph on the 4 mile official road test around town.

No noticeable vibration at 85 (actual) with the full windscreen and lowers.
