1. As everyone knows while riding in hilly areas if you rely on your drum brakes, they can get overheat pretty quick resulting in no grip after a shortwhile which can be dangerous if you need a sudden stop.
So while riding on steep hills, i try to use engine braking as much as possible.
But sometimes on very steep hills, even engine braking in 2nd gear is not enough so i use 1st gear which gives me enough braking power. But this lead to very high RPMs in 1st gear, i am pretty sure it will be red lining if i have the RPM meter. So all i wanna know that is it ok??? can it harm the engine??
2. If drums are overheated, is it advisable to put water on them to quickly cool them down??? If No, why???
Thanks in advance
