Default overdrive

has anyone ever used a overdrive on a fourstroke engine? its the opposite of a gear reduction. i think this would help in getting the final drive closer to a two stroke. not as extreme as 2:1 but maybe 1.4:1. I realize it would reduce torque. but a four stroke has some to spare.

Take a look to the FW05 4-stroke conversion kit the clutchbell already has twice as much teeth on the pinions.
Speed is only fiction but a 130+km/h MRS4 is for real.
