    Well I took Glliders advice and tried the Spectro lube for 6 speed trans. Took out for test ride and from what I can tell in only a few miles it shifts smoother than with the mobil 1. Time will tell.

    it would be fine but the 5 speed wont make use of all the additives that the 6 speed does

    they make it for 5 speeds as well. not cheep by anymeans. 6 speed lube is 16 bucks a qt. way i look at it thats not bad afterall look what we pay for the buke in the first place.

    Both transmissions can use the Spectro 6 speed oil but there is one for the 5 speeds as well. The 6 speed is red and the 5 speed is green and works just as well in the 5 speed as the red does in the 6 speed.

    Take a look here...

    I put Spectro 6 in my fatboy a year ago and now I wouldn't use any thing else.
