When my ride was still stock it didn't even come into its own until around 6 or 7000 RPM, and it didn't really produce until 9 or 10000. I suppose you could do 75 in 6th at that RPM, but why? I know the exhaust gets a bit loud in the 10000 range, but...its supposed too! Drop a gear or two, enjoy the noise, and ride it like it's a sportbike (they like it rough! :spank:)!

Stock gearing on my '03 RR was 6.5k at 75mph.  So if you are running 7k at 75mph, I'd think your gearing is off just a bit.
