    Well I've decided to put a 6-speed tranny in the 01 Fatboy. I've looked online and shopped around. The candidates are Baker and Screamin' Eagle. The ratios in the SE are the same as stock with the .89 6th gear. The Baker has optional first gear to get it close to stock ratios.

    My question that I'd like some opinions on is this: Is the Baker really worth the extra money?

    IMO YES, they were the first to have a 6 speed and have done a better job because they had to, pricey but well worth it:s

    After a little more research the jury has come back with a verdict. Baker OD6 gearset is on it's way. Seems as though if you change a 5-speed to a 6 with the Screamin Eagle you have to remove some of the case and you can never go back to a 5-speed.........like I'm going to. BTW they're running some special at this time. Softail OD6 gearset is $2030 delivered.
