Hey, you're getting better responses on this forum.

Do the shift kit. Your engine will be humming at a higher cruising, not ready to explode. Average mph will be higher, hill climbing easier, and the many flats you'll have will be easier to fix.

I ride 60+ miles on my Tanaka 47R engine. It's not even breaking a sweat, and neither am I. I'm out like a light when I reach home though, but then I'm a senior citizen, lol.
