A racer brought up a good point about going shorter on the final drive. You can make the rpm drop closer together by going shorter in the final drive. Throw away 6th by making it more like what 5th was. Make 5th into 4th, 4th into 3rd, ect. Now you are more often using one gear up from what you were using before, where most transmissions group the ratios closer together at the top.
I cruise long distance on the highway so I use 6th (can't throw it away). And 7th (what was 6th before I went longer on my sprockets).
