F6R: Factory 6-Speed Reverse

 

 

The F6R kit adds a reverse gear to any existing 2006-later factory big twin 6 speed. The system is unlike any other on the market – it works off the stock shift lever. With a simple flip of the handlebar or dash mounted safety toggle switch and a kick of the shift lever you’re in reverse. It’s that simple. No reaching near hot pipes to put your bike in reverse by hand. With the BAKER reverse system you’ll be able to safely shift from 1st to reverse and back with no risk of engaging both gears at once. You’ll also find it’s much easier to find neutral than on a stock bike. Our reverse gears are fully heat treated, with diamond ground tooth profiles and cut from gear grade 8620 steel. Our gear ratios were chosen to make it easy for you to maneuver your bike in reverse. The overall 4.98:1 gear ratio in reverse is essentially a creeper gear, which is 45% shorter than the stock 3.34:1 first gear.

 

- Adds a reverse gear to the stock Cruise Drive 6 Speed Transmission

- 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 foot shift lever. Shift into reverse like any other gear. (R-1-N-2-3-4-5-6 Shift Pattern) Electronic reverse safety lock out solenoid is energized with the handlebar or inner fairing mounted momentary toggle switch

- No ‘accidentally’ shifting into reverse due to the safety lever mechanism that locks out reverse when the solenoid is not energized

- No reaching near hot pipes or auxiliary levers to work

- Redundant spring system on the safety lever assembly make it is the safest reverse system on the market today

- Included shift drum improves shift quality and the ability to find neutral, every time

- 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

F6R Kits Notes:

Front or Rear Facing Solenoid Version F6R Kits Contain The Same Parts Except For The Shift Drum, Safety Lever And Side Cover. There Is A Rear & Forward Solenoid Version Of Each Part.

 

*2007-08 Touring Model Exhaust Installation Notes: Stock Exhaust will clear the F6R front facing solenoid side cover and solenoid. Exhaust that follows the path of stock exhaust or true duals where the rear pipe travels directly to the left side of the motorcycle over the top of the transmission will work. 2 INTO 1 STYLE PIPES WHERE THE REAR HEAD PIPE GOES DOWN THE FRONT SIDE OF THE STOCKTRANSMISSION SIDE COVER REQUIRE THE USE OF THE REAR FACING SOLENOID SIDE COVER. See the ‘F6R Side Cover Styles’ images further down the page for solenoid locations.

 

*2009-Later Touring Model Exhaust Installation Notes: The Stock exhaust 2 into 1 into 2 design requires the use of the Rear Facing Solenoid Side Covers. See the ‘F6R Side Cover Styles’ images further down the page for solenoid locations.

FERRULE STYLE CLUTCH CABLE TECH TIP:

This tip applies to F5R, F6R, F5K, F6K, RSD and Big Dog style clutch cable installations that utilize a split ferrule for cable retention. It is recommended that the inner cable, ferrule and ball ramps are coated liberally with wheel bearing grease upon final installation. This step has been omitted for photo clarity.

After attaching the clutch cable to the clutch lever, be sure that the cable adjuster is fully collapsed. Screw the cable into the sidecover. Slide the ball ramp over the exposed inner cable, then the split ferrule over the inner cable end. Rotate the ball ramp fully rearward removing all of the slack from the inner cable and engaging the ferrule into the ball ramp. Install a miniature nylon cable tie on the inner wire directly in FRONT of the ball ramp as far back as possible. Snip the excess tie as short as possible. This will prevent the ferrule from accidently becoming dislodged during installation and/or clutch adjustment.

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).
