You could always adjust the throttle stop a little, stops you going all the way. Its just a screw and nut under the hood.

life's full of ups "n" downs.

Becareful GIBB bud you dont blow that powerhead up . TO ME THAT engine is DEFINETLY REVVVVVVVVVVVVING too HIGH for that model . I have seen these powerheads and have got one NOW blown up after 43 hrs being over propped and I promise you a two stroke engine as we all KNOW are high revvvvving engines but being run like that you are asking for probs . It would be interesting to know what your top speed is with it revving that high? that my opinion if it was mine i would be propping to run @ 5300 max to be on the safe side . chow

prop for Tohatsu 30

Your prop is definitely too long with 13" pitch, you should decrease to 11, with this one you should rev WOT above 5500 without risk.
Over-revving : no risk, all the engines have a rev limiter !
