Hey everybody. Starting to tweak my 80 Maxi-Luxe (2.HP) for my area. The local area I live has some really steep semi-long hills. It doesn't help that I'm a fat ass. I've changed my gearing to 12 -45 and am stoked with the new performance.

Here's my question: I have a few truly monster hills I have to drive to leave my neighborhood - the Puch now will climb them, but my rpms drop way down. I pedal to give a boost. Am I hurting the engine or clutch climbing at WOT at such a slow speed?
