Cruise Drive Smooth Shift Kit

The design principles that made our Six-Speed Overdrive shift so smooth were applied to create a shift drum kit that will bolt onto any cruise drive 6-speed and give super smooth and precise shifting. The pillow block included with the Standard Shift Drum kits are machined from our 6061-T6 extrusion stock for a significant increase in strength over stock.

  • Enjoy  – Redundant neutral feature, and improved ratchet pawl geometry assist the rider in finding neutral the first time, every time.
  • Smoother, more positive shifting - Smoother, positive shifting is achieved by incorporating advanced geometry in the fork pin groves, and the integration of a linear detent bearing on the right side mounting plate.
  • Reduced shift effort - The fixed spindle drum design offers lower friction as the drum rotates, reducing the effort required by the rider to complete a shift.
  • Less shift clunk - Each design improvement combines in a precise mechanical choreography that is inherently silent.
  • Easy Installation – There is no need to disassemble the stock gearset from the bearing door. Just pull out the stock gearset, and swap out the stock shift drum for the BAKER Smooth Shift Kit Drum. No adjustments are needed for the shift drum, direct bolt in design. Re-uses stock shifter pawl, stock pawl centering pin, shift forks and fork rods.
  • High Durability - Precision machined spindle and drum for the most durable shift drum on the market. 
  • Fits 2007-2018 Touring Applications & 2007-2017 Softail Applications (PN CD6-602 or CD6N1-602)
  • Fits 2017-Later M8 Applications (PN CD6-602-M8)
