Alex Fox - Slyfox Performance

Alex Fox may come from a well-known family, but he is making strides of his own. He started SlyFox Performance in 2019, specializing in performance Harley parts, and puts his products to the test by racing in the Bagger Racing League. His most recent build was his 2023 Drag Specialties FatBook Road King cover bike. This bike was built to showcase the performance side of the motorcycle industry and in our opinion, he did a fantastic job executing it!

The Direct Drive 7-Speed

Have you ever thought the stock 6-speed needs another gear to keep your bike within the powerband? Well, the DD7 will do just that!

The BAKER Direct Drive 7-Speed (DD7) was engineered to make full use of the torque and power output by the Twin Cam and M-8 motors via precise gear ratio management. Experience smooth, crisp shifting, continuously pulling acceleration, and strong takeoffs from stoplights.

ECM Re-flash Quick Tip

When you purchase a BAKER DD7 or GrudgeBox, you will want to re-flash the ECM (engine control module). The DD7 and the GrudgeBox have different gear ratios than the stock transmission. This changes the input to the ECM. The gear indicator and cruise control may only operate in the 6th (DD7) or 5th (GrudgeBox) gear. To correct the gear indicator in all gears and enable cruise control in 3rd, 4th, 6th, and 7th (for the DD7) an ECM re-flash is required.
