    Baker is doing a 7 speed tranny. That would be the way to go if your going to spend the money.

    The only thing you will gain by putting a six speed in your '05 is a lighter wallet...you would be better off taking the $$$$ you will spend on the six speed and put it with what ever a dealer will give ya for your '05 and buy a 09 or 10 and get the whole new package!

    Is it possible to swap a used factory 6-speed into a 2001-newer big twin?

    Pretty shure the cases would not match up, but a six speed gear set is easy to install and worth every penny of it in my book.
     
  8. I will be doing a 6 speed Optima install in my '01 EG. My mechanic said it will be well worth the $$. I asked about the 7speed, and was told that it wouldnt fit in the older bikes. Cant wait to get riding..
