Thanks for the comments guys!!
Scratch yeah I can cruise low rpms down to around 25. Right now the clutch and shoes are worn so it's engaging and disengaging a bit higher at 30ish. But you know even with the 2-speed I could cruise at 25 in high gear. Cause on heavy acceleration it could shift at 35, but then with light loads and keeping light power on it I could keep the top gear engaged almost down to 25ish but it would start slipping. 30mph top gear cruise was the best.
I think I'm gonna swap the high gear box and primary chains to #35. This will fix my 2-speed and hopefully reduce the amount of maintenance it needs while I work on other 2-speed designs. I'll be starting this other build soon probably with a Briggs 5hp and will use it to test new designs. I wanna create a 2-speed jackshaft for motorized bikes, because the ones available are for minibikes and don't have the right ratios, adjustability or shift speed.

This bike was stretched to look like mine! The chainstays are straight though.
