Cruise Drive Smooth Shift Kit

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

  • Easier to find neutral – 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.
  • Prevents mis-shifts - The ratchet pawl design incorporates an anti-overshift feature for both up and downshifts that prevent the rider from skipping over a gear.
  • 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 and pawl for the BAKER Smooth Shift Kit Drum & Ratchet Pawl. No adjustments needed for the ratchet pawl or shift drum, direct bolt in design. Re-uses stock pawl centering pin, shift forks and fork rods.
  • High Durability - Machined splines on the pawl to transmission lever provide less chance of stripping. Precision TIG welded shaft to ratchet pawl body combined with improved mechanical press fit design increase long term durability.
  • Fits 2006-up Dyna, 2007-up FL/Touring
