you dont need a shift kit, go for a 36 tooth sprocket, i live in a sorta hilly sorta flat area and the 36 is suiting me fine, my top speed ranges from 50-60 km/hr . No lies, i do have a NT SPEED CARB but when i had the stock carb on i could keep up with my brother, now that i bought the NT speed carb and installed it, we both pull the same till we reach max rpm then he starts going at least 5 to 10 km/hr more... kinda pissing me off atm. Waiting for a nicer day to work on it.. gas is cold when it gets on your hands in the winter. ^_^
i have a buddy with a speedo and his max speed with a 36 tooth was 71.1 km/r on a cruiser, homade expansion chamber... fast.
