Most 4 strokes will need valves adjusted more often the more time you spend at high rpms. It shouldn't hurt the engine though. I agree that it sounds like you badly need higher gearing. Don't flog it 'till it's warm, keep reasonably clean, good quality oil in it, keep up on maintenance (valves, etc.), and ride it however you like. These things are quite durable.
