This has just recently been discussed.
The MaxBytes setting comes from the device itself.  If the
device reports 8012 Bps (strange value BTW) then 8012 it is.

The proper way is to make a change on the device.  This may not
be possible.  In that case there is not much you can do apart
from altering the cfgmaker output.

In stead of manually altering it, you could write a script that
filters the output of cfgmaker thereby changing those values.
This is useful if you recreate your config file frequently.
