I have that combo in my bike.
If you want to know how rpm will change try this:

It's in german, but I think you'll understand it. It's calculated with 3% slip (Schlupf) and a 130/80 rear tire.
I've entered the long 5th as sixth gear so you'll see the difference.

You have a stock engine?
For travelling at constant speed this may be really good.
Acceleration in fifth will suffer, can't say how much.
My engine pulls it easily.
