Even the Honda doesn't recommend going over 7500 rpm. It's max hp is at 7000 rpm. Now I'm talking about level ground speed. If your transmission is 5:1 when going down hill throttle back once you reach 29 mph and let gravity take over. On level ground don't go over 27 mph to keep from damaging your engine.But that's why you pay extra for that Honda
If your transmission is a 4:1 then 34 mph is your level ground cut off speed; throttle back going down hill when you reach 36 mph.
