I have a 2006 vmax that seems like it needs a 6th gear.Besides a 6 speed transmission, is there a cheaper fix??

Well normally there is something you can do. But to my memory you have a shaft drive. There is not alot you can do with that. Belt and chain drive are both very adjustable for this problem.

98 indy 500 I pull it over cold and it backfired, and wont start

It sounds like some of that water turned to steam in the engine and the pressure of the steam did some damage. Check out the timing chain and the timing mark alignment. Check out the valve condition...there might be some chipped or cracked valves...yikes!
