Default Faster is safer. What are my options for a bit more speed?

I'm in the process of purchasing and receiving motor and parts for a first build in Puerto Rico.

I've already received my turbobuick chain tensioner and my Cree 5000 lumen Headlight and these parts look great.

A concern of mine is the aggressive drivers in Puerto Rico.

The first likely safety issue is going to be not being able to keep up with 35-40mph traffic on twisting turning hilly roads without much of a shoulder.

So my question is this:

What fairly simple mods can be done to achieve greater speed on a 26" Beach Cruiser with a 66cc motor?

Smaller rear sprocket?

If so, I'll likely need a chain breaker, correct?

Keeping in mind I am currently 250 lbs.

I appreciate all input!

Thank you, Eric, the americanroadwarrior
