Chow you picked up speed don't worry. I started out with 18-40 went to 18-36 then to 20-36 now I'm at 20-32 and the thing still revs out and pulls strong through 1sp gear. The gearing dose not seem to effect 1st gear as much for what ever reason. You saw the vid. Heck with my shift point where it is now I can't get to 2nd gear most of the time between stop signs.
