I expect an increase in mileage with proper jetting. Of course, that gets balanced against the fun factor effects of having a bike that actually runs right.

I got 85mph (indicated) even with a nasty high-speed miss. I get up to 75mpg riding mellow (twin-track or country roads), but down to about 50mpg on the freeway (ie. wringing it's neck).

After further jet testing this weekend, I think my miss is really a bad condensor. For the carbs, I'm looking at 124/112 main jets, which is consistent with what you flatlanders are reporting (my house is 7500 ft, where there's about 6% less air in the air).
