Update:

When I tested it after buttoning it up last night, I was hitting a max of "11" with the machine set to 15 so today I popped it open and adjusted the shape and position of my...I was calling it a diffuser, but it's more of a light blocker...so that I could hit "15" at full travel..

Here's the size, shape and position of the light blocker that did it for me--It starts after a half centimeter of lever travel, will hold a speed of "1" all day long and will hit "15" at the end of travel with a steady, predictable graduation in speed. NOTE that the arm is rotated away from the sensor just to take this pic--I positioned it correctly after the photo:

THE FACTORY SHOULD BE MAKING THE LIGHT BLOCKERS IN THIS SHAPE:
