New to the forum, I have a 05 softail deluxe that has the 5 speed, and I wanted to move up to the 6 speed cause I put a lot of higway miles on my bike for my job. My buddy has a wrecked 2007 standard softail that he said he'll let me have the transmission, which is a 6 speed, for $500. I was wondering if i could just have my old 5 speed dropped and out and the "new" 6 speed bolted in. I've had a few peole tell me "No" and a few say "yes" does anybody know. The guy at my local HD shop said it could and that it was a great price cause a brand new one would cost like 3K.
