“Maximum power” and “maximum torque” are usually quite different for our motors, be they Rotaxes, CR125’s, or Leopards.  You should probably try to shift somewhere between max power and torque, and then gear the longest straight to reach just short (100-200rpm) short of your max power/redline (whichever is lower).
