    Just bought an New 09 FLHX Street Glide and have found that 5th gear has a very loud whine. Called dealership and I was told it has something to do with a unique cut of the teeth for 5th gear only in the new 6 speed. Is this true, or am I getting a blow off...thanks in adva:newsmile07:nce

    Will the lube help that sloppy 1st to 2d shifting? Besides the "clunk", seems I am always hitting neutral instead of second? My apologies if this should have been a separate thread.

    It should help the shifting also. You'll find that finding neutral on a downshift will be improved as well.

    I use Mobil 1 full synthetic gear lube 75-90 & it seems to work fine , the trans shifts smoother & run quieter & it is easy to get , you can find it in most auto parts stores , I get it @ Auto Zone for about $10 a quart .
