I would think this problem can be solve if serpent produce the 52/53/54 spear for 2nd speed.
Are you referring to a 710 GEARING OR 720?
Your signature makes things confusing.
The diameters of all gears are very close, so setting equal mesh should not be an issue.
But as we acknowledge the 16t gear causes lots of people problems we changed the internal ratio in the 720 to make sure you'd not need it anymore.
For me I run my MF (nova based) with 17/60 and my Mega ZX with 17/59.
Any shorter than that creates only wheelspin! The rest is in the clutch.
