Any aftermarket ring and pinion gears for the 2016 goldwing ? Bike is turning 4K @ 90mph!
Way to much! In my opinion.

It won't hurt it but someone is making a set of gears.

it is all in the mind, the engine simply doesn't care.....
it can twist at 5500 RPM all day long, and never miss a beat.

slowing it down, MIGHT, improve fuel mileage, but it won't be near enough to offset the cost of a new set of ring & pinion gears.

I have ridden my older 1500s and my current 1800 in 4th gear for many miles at 70 mph and was too busy with traffic and gawking to notice that it was not in 5th gear....
as it happens, my GPS blocks the view of the 5th gear indicator, if I want to know, I keep trying to go 'up a gear' until it won't.

Dropping it to 70 is then 3,111 rpm. It's just a number.

Top end is about 125, change the rear gear up, likely it'll run faster in 4th than in 5th then.
