Transmission Upgrades, tough alternatives to the stock 5-Speed

   Are you the proud owner of a pre-2007 Harley-Davidson? Is your ride lacking an extra gear in the transmission? Do you notice when you venture onto the interstate it seems there is a need for the transmission to be shifted one more time? Would you like better fuel economy? Here at K and G Cycles (www,kandgcycles.com) we have the solution to your concerns. No matter what you ride, an FL Touring bike, a Softtail, a Dyna, or even Sportsters and Buell’s up to 2003, we have the goods to make the transformation complete and bring you sixth gear. We’ve even got the right stuff for you guys that have a 70’s to early 84 kicker. These conversions can be accomplished using either a builder’s kit that modifies your present transmission or by installing a complete transmission assembly depending on your application and skill level you are comfortable with.

    A “Builder’s Kit” is designed72735-02 6 speed gear set for those already posessing a transmission or motorcycle they are wanting to upgrade. Therefore the only modification needed is installing a gear set. This decreases cost as well as potential labor time, depending on your skill level. A smaller but true benefit of the builders kit is it allows those that want to maintain the stock look to do so. These kits often see an overall cost savings because you aren’t having to purchase extra parts you do not need, however the amount of labor required can definitely be more.

   For those intere680251-02-kicker-6-speed   sted in saving time rather than money, take a look at the selection of complete transmissions, 5-speed, 6-speed, and even a 6-speed into 4 speed version.
