I have been using an FT-920 borrowed from my club station and found nobody was hearing me. I had all the settings up about 50%, but found I had to turn the Mic Gain up to 75% and the compressor to about the same.  Is this normal with the stock mic (MH31)?  On my FT-897 and on my IC-718 I only have these settings up to about 50%.  I don't like to overdrive the transmitter, but this seemed to be the only way to make contacts with the 920.
Interested in anyone else's experiences with this rig.

What happens when you load it up into a dummy load?

If the ALC meter is in its "green region" on voice peaks (this varies, rig-to-rig, as to how it's marked), your mic gain is OK.   If the compressor is compressing by less than 10 dB, your compressor setting is probably OK.

What kind of audio reports are you getting?
