The BAKER™ XL6 is a six-speed overdrive ‘cartridge style’ gearset that converts any existing 1991-2003 Sportster/Buell to a BAKER™ six speed. 2nd through 5th gear ratios are effectively the same as stock, 6th gear is a true overdrive for a 511rpm drop at 75mph.
1st Gear Ratio
BAKER recommends HCR usage for most street applications.
2nd Gear Ratio
Stock gear widths in 1st through 5th were retained and a beefy 6th gear was added. This was accomplished by utilizing an exclusive BAKER dog tooth design that is an industry first for American motorcycles. In using male shift dogs with female dog pockets we are able to slam 6 gears within the allowed envelope. Looking at the S&S cutaway you can see there is no room to waste.
Shift drums have optimized fork pin groove geometry for smoother shifting and the ability to find neutral. Drum detent plate is made out of billet and secured to the drum using a bolt, no more flimsy retaining clip. Choice between a standard or reverse pattern shift system.
Our shift forks are made out of billet for strength, bores are machined / polished to a 32 micro finish and then we hard chrome plate them for wear resistance.
