My first new gear is actually 5% above std gearing. I expect that with riding solo on the bike (no place for a passenger) and mainly on flat roads this will not present a problem.
Std reduction of gearbox is 6.168. My new first is 5.896. The new second is 4.803.
But probably you calculated that already based on the number of teeth for the various gear wheels mentioned in a earlier post.
