    Should definitely be faster than that. Do you use a gps? If not maybe your speedo is not reading correctly. What RPM's are you reading?

    You should see 10,000 RPMS on the tach and that should put you right at 59MPH as long as it is a HO and not a 140, Julio...

    Its any ho im not sure what the rpm's were at didnt look. Im thinking of changing the plugs just because it has setting for a few years and didnt know if a gas additives would be good also.

    Definitely put a high quality fuel injector cleaner in it to clean out the gunk that's built up in the fuel lines and engine. Use a good one like Techron.

    For sure get some plugs... When I bought my FXHO (05), it ran like a worn out dog, I was doubting myself for buying it... throw in some new plugs...

    I freaking love my FXHO!
