    I know they went to a six speed in the baggers in 2007, can anyone tell the gear ratios for the the first year, and the changes that were made in the gearing in 08 and 09.
    Thanks Jonnierock

    2008 ratios (from motorcycle.com) looks the same as 2007.
    (1/2/3/4/5/6), 9.31 / 6.42 / 4.77 / 3.93 / 3.28 / 2.79 ...
