Question about 2001 Harley Davidson FXST Softail Standard
The last Harley-Davidson motorcycle to use the 1 up - 3 down was the 1973-74 Sprints. The U.S. law was adopted in 1974 effective with the 1975 and later models that required all motorcycles to shift on the left side and be in a 1 down and 3 or 4 up pattern. Today, they are still 1 down and the rest up. How many up is dependant on the year model. The last year for right side shift Sportsters was 1974. In 1975 and 1976, they put this funky crossover linkage under the bike to convert the right side shift transmission to a left side shift. Then, in 1977, Harley modified the cases and the transmission to be a true left side shift. Man, that was a long time ago. Means I'm old and I might not be totally correct but close enough.
