    Someone told me that the only true 6 speed transmission is on the cvo modles 110 motors and that the 103 motor are not true 6 speed. Is that right?

    Not sure what you mean by "true 6 speed" but I have 6 gears and have used them so I know I have a 6 speed tranny.
    It even says so on the cover.:dknow

    Harley achieves the overdrive gearing thru the 6 speed and the gearing of the primary drive, Baker has a true Overdrive tranny and now a 7 speed available, tho the H D 6 speed is a very good set up IMO

    HD sixth gear is 1:1. It's direct drive. That's really what I would want for a final transmission gear ratio. It's the most efficient way to transfer power to the rear wheel.
    I also can't see looking at the HD transmission as anything but a 6 speed transmission.

    If we get anymore speeds pretty soon we will be shifting into high and low gears. Wouldn't that be fun?

    I have a 1981 Honda 900 custom with a high/low transmission . They introduced it for sport or touring. I have owned that bike for 30 yrs. and it runs as well as it did when I bought it.
