I don't normally pay a whole lot of attention to the speedo. I use to use it more as a tach but I've gotten pretty good at knowing rpm by feel but I use 2nd and 3rd if I want to know pin point an rpm by speed/gear.

The needle jets aren't as readily available either. They allow tuning twice as fine as just raising or dropping the needle a groove. Im running a 96.5 needle in clip position 2.5.
Isn't the different combinations something like 560? That's fine tuning.
People with EFI aren't likely to be as in tune with the feel of their motor.

Remember when just about everyone ran the same jets in the cv? Or close to it anyway. Just can't fine tune that carb nearly as well. I sure don't miss the vacuum operated slide and it's delayed reaction.
