10/10 for IPv4
0/10 for IPv6

This should be interesting, the infrastructure here runs about 10 years behind, only time will tell.

At default I get 10/10 for Ipv4 and 0/10 for IPv6.

It is quite easy to create an IPv6 tunnel though, and then configure you're machine to use OpenDNS's Ipv6 servers. That then results in 10/10 for both tests.

Check out Hurricane Electric Free IPv6 Tunnel Broker to create a tunnel.

You don’t have IPv6, but you shouldn’t have problems on websites that add IPv6 support.
At this time this sounds good to me.

To be honest. I wouldn't do anything if I were you. Much may change before you have a need to be IPv6 enabled. Your ISP may be the issue at this time as well, as they aren't pressured to make IPv6 available yet.

Questions.
1. Does your ISP have to be set up for this change.
2. How does one know if the ISP is up and running IPV6.

Is my Linksys BEFSR41 router compat with IPV6? When I look in the manual I can't see any reference to it or IPV4.

1. No, if you're ISP isn't IPv6 ready then you can set up an Ipv6to4 tunnel as long as your router supports Protocol 41 forwarding. In most cases it's a simple firmware upgrade, although some routers may need to be replaced. If you're interested check out Hurricane Electric Free IPv6 Tunnel Broker
2. Check out Test your IPv6. to test you're IPv6 readiness. As I said though, even if you're not IPv6 ready, a tunnel will give you Ipv6

No, I have the same router. We'll all be buying new ones when we need to start using IPv6. See this, it's not just our old Linksys routers:

Cisco Linksys routers still don't support IPv6

Even if your ISP switches to IPv6 and you have a router that can handle IPv6 you need to make sure that your firewall can handle IPv6.

The Windows 7 firewall can. However, it is my understanding that some third party Firewalls are not yet compatible with IPv6.

So if using IPv6 and another Firewall besides the Windows Firewall I think that you need to make sure that it is compatible with IPv6. That is my understanding.
