    Heres a new one how about a 7 speed for you 06 and up Harley ?
    7th gear is the same ratio as 6th on the Cruise Drive but the other gears start a little lower and tighter

    Seems like it's a bit excessive with the lower ratios on the 09 bikes. Don't think I would care for 7 speeds but that's just me.:s

    I would love to be able to cruise about 90 mph with a lower RPM to save fuel. A true overdrive (7th gear) without changing sprockets, and still have 1:1 ratio as my 6th gear:newsmile03:

    Just a thought, with all the torque, it is hard to know what is the optimum gearing in actual application. What is the optimum gearing for a bike seems pretty subjective (look at the thread about shifting points other HDT bikers have posted).

    I find in day to day use I have a tendency to want to shift too early in town, but too late when out on the motorway, just because I owned a Metric before (I don't have a tach on my bike) so shift by "feel" of the engine. Seems 70 mph in top gear on my 5 speed Sporty (with my respects to Smitty and the Law) :57: seems optimum for the motor (overdrive not withstanding) and shift points getting there seem to be 10-15mph over recommended owner' manual setting to not "lug" the engine. Is there a need for OD...I dunno... :unsure

    I was at Biketoberfest just last weekend. Saw the Baker tent at the Speedway. They had tranny's and gear sets on display. I saw the DD7. Just for fun I asked the sales guy what they were selling for. He said,"$2895, or $3295 installed, plus tax.... I told him I was happy with my 6 speed... That Baker stuff sure is purrrdy though...
