Question about 2005 Harley Davidson FXSTB - FXSTBI Night Train

1 Answer

Had someone upgrade my transmission from 5 to 6 speed on my 06 Soft Tail (Night Train). Do not like the piece that is mounted between the chrome cover and the original transmission (looks like it is made to mount to several models). What is this piece and do I have any options on getting specifically for my bike?

I am looking for a reverse kit to fit a 06 heritage soft tail classic 5 speed fuel injected Do you have one that will fit this bike

Hi, Janet there are a few companies out there that manufacture reverse kits for 2005 FLSTC with different engineering ways to achieve reverse and pricing ranges from $1200-$1900 with installation time ranging from 2-5 hours. I have been in the Harley business for 37 years and only do business with Baker Drive Train they are the best in the business by far. I strongly recommend you do your homework and review all the reviews and options with different vendors before making an informed decision Good luck and have a nice day.

I"m trying to locate the

To drain the transmission, look at the chrome end plate on the transmission that the clutch cable runs into. This is the clutch release mechanism. Just below this, in the center the plate the chrome one bolts to, is a drain plug similar to a pipe plug. Remove the plug, transmission drains. Refill the transmission with 20-24 ounces of transmission lube.

I have a 1990 chevy K1500 4X4 with a NV3500 5 speed manual. I want to use it in a 2 wheel drive truck. Can this be done and what modifications do i need to make to it?

You'll need to find a tail piece for the transmission, a 2WD driveshaft and probably a trans mount crossmember. The driveshaft needs to come out of a truck that had that transmission installed in it to be the right length.
You should be able to find all this in a scrap yard or auto salvage yard for a decent price ($200 range) unless it is a fiberglass driveshaft. To have a driveshaft built custom for your truck will probably cost around $350. Hope this helps.
