The DD6-RV upgrades any existing 1990-2006 big twin 5 speed to a Direct Drive 6 Speed with Reverse. The contents in the DD6-RV kit are similar to the F6R; door, side cover, countershaft, reverse gear train and hardware. Existing gearset (except countershaft), shift system and top cover will be re-used with the DD6-RV installation. The DD6-RV will be appreciated by those with heavy GVW applications (trikes, side cars and trailers) or those with compromised leg mobility. Also available as a 6 Speed Builder’s Kit with reverse, or as a complete transmission upgrade. No longer do you have to wrestle that large bagger out of a tight parking situation. You can safely and easily back up in reverse using the throttle and clutch. All reverse functions are on the handlebars and/or inner fairing. No reaching down near the hot exhaust to actuate reverse. By design it is mechanically impossible to be in reverse and a forward gear like other units on the market. Maintain the freedom of being powered by an American Big Twin – even in reverse!
- Will retrofit with all BAKER LSD DD6 transmissions.
- Full complement of parts and detailed instructions included for an easy installation.
- Reverse is designed as a creeper gear for the safest operation possible.
- Reverse selection controlled by aircraft grade shifting solenoid & crank assembly. Electronic reverse safety lock out solenoid is energized with the handlebar mounted momentary toggle switch.
- No ‘accidentally’ shifting into reverse. Solenoids are only powered when the bike is in neutral and automatically turn ‘off’ when bike is shifted out of neutral.
- Redundant dual spring system on the shifting bell crank assembly make it is the safest reverse system on the market today.
- True ‘plug & play’ wiring harness. No using the starter motor for reverse maneuvers either.
- No case modifications required for reverse gearset installation.
- Backed by a 2 year limited warranty.
- 5.93:1 ratio reverse gear in the DD6-RV gearset, which is 45% shorter than the standard DD6 1st gear ( 3.24:1). Making it essentially a creeper gear.- Reverse gears and dogs made of 8620 gear steel, fully case hardened to 58-62 Rockwell C. Ground tooth profiles with diamond coating tooling
- Billet (6061-T6) Aluminum bearing door and side covers. Available in polished or chrome finishes.
- Pre heat treated 4140 billet steel shift fork (28-32 Rockwell C) rides on a case hardened, ground finish fork rod.
- Hydraulic side cover (1.5″ Piston) works with stock and aftermarket 11/16″ bore hydraulic clutch lever assemblies.
- All included bolts are polished stainless steel.
- Clears the stock FLT/ FLH cast oil spout.
- Will retrofit with previously installed BAKER DD6 transmissions.
- DD6 countershaft disassembly for reverse kit install requires a split bearing puller. BAKER makes a tool designed just for this job, pn 483-DD6RVT, pictured below under recommended upgrades.
- Typical install time is 6-9 hours depending on the model of motorcycle, exhaust and installed accessories.
- Sticks out from bearing door the same amount as a stock mechanical (cable style) transmission side cover.
- Due to the solenoid location on the side cover, the DD6-RV may not work with some 2-into-1 exhaust systems where the rear head pipe goes down in front of the transmission. Clears all stock exhaust systems will a small amount of clearancing to the lower door mount exhaust bracket required on stock FLT/ FLH systems.

Recommended Fluid Level
Picking the right transmission fluid ensures the life and durability of your transmission, that’s why BAKER recommends a fully synthetic GL-5 rated gear weight oil of 75W-140. If a GL-5 rated gear lube is not available, these commonly carried viscosities (weights) will work 75W-90, 75W-140 and 85W-140. BAKER does not recommend the use of Syn3 (20W-50).
