Outstanding!
Try gearing next. I think you can crack 100 mpg!

Also when you change your chain/sprockets get a high quality low friction non 0-ring race chain and an automatic chain oiler like a Scottoiler. The dirty excess oil flings off at the countershaft sprocket and is relatively easily hosed off (use engine oil). It honestly reduces chain stretch by 3-5 times by keeping the chain lubed and clean. My experience with it on my GPZ550 confirms I'll buy one for the next street chain drive bike I buy. Pays for itsself before your next chain/sprocket change.
