FL Case Differentiations
To see an illustrated example of the differences between FL cases by year, please open the PDF here.
All DD6 gearsets are made out of 8620 steel, gears are shaper cut before heat treat then precision ground with diamond coated tooling after heat treat (58-62 Rockwell ‘C’). This extra steps ensures not only a quieter gear pair, but enables much tighter backlash control. The gearset is a combination of helical and spur gears to yield silent gear operation. The dog teeth are backcut at a 1° angle to optimize the smooth shift possible, while standard gearsets are cut to a 4° angle. The mainshaft is unique with 1st main gear being incorporated as part of the shaft, the countershaft also features a unique 1-piece design with 6th gear.

Builder’s Kit Notes
The BAKER Softail case design had all leak potentials in mind during the design. We added stud pads to the inside of the case so that the thread holes for the transmission studs were blind holes, NOT through holes like some aftermarket brands. Looking at the image on the right you can see the difference.

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).
